I feel the same Pacific. How can a group of people decide to do such a terrible thing?

I read that story and it made my stomach turn. That poor, poor woman sad

joan, no I haven't - can you link?

Do you think the large number of rapes/sexual assaults in Delhi (which no doubt will be hugely underreported) are a reflection of patriarchy feeling threatened by womanhood being poised to assert itself??

I am clutching at straws, aren't I sadangry?

RIP, Braveheart. The men who did this to you have no right to live. So, so angry and sad about can anyone be so brutal? sad

Another completely avoidable tragedy. Another life lost. And how many more lives will be blighted by living in fear of this happening to them, too, if they dare to go out alone?
