Stop "Honor" Killings.

"Witches" burned, daughters sold, opponent's wives and children raped, female infants murdered, rape victims murdered by their fathers, girl fetuses aborted, and of course the femicide of choice in the Middle East- Stoning. Or if you're from Saudi, you could be drowned in the family pool, or from South East Asia you could be gang raped as punishment for your brother's crime, or from Africa you could be circumcised in a bloody, archaic ritual, or in China left to die from exposure, the list is mortifyingly endless.

It's so good to know you've got the UN and Amnesty International on the case. I fully expect all of this to be wiped out by the time my daughter goes to college and appreciates the fact that her risks pale in comparison to that of her 'sisters' on the other side of the globe. Of course I won't let her live on campus, I got enough sexual harrassment on an American college campus (by students and staff) to figure out we are never really safe, but we do what we can.

Oh boy, she's going to hate me.

In the name of god, the merciful, the compassionate.
Notice the frenzy in the end. Song in Spanish, saying "I love you, oh how I love you."
