ABUSE of WOMEN MUST CEASE

August 14, 2015

Throughout history women and children have been subjected to brutal treatment in conquest and domination.  NO nation has been exempt.

 

These practices must be stopped.  It is immoral to use a pretext to destroy the sacred lives of our women and girls around the world.  It is wrong t0 sell and misuse women and children in slavery.  It is wrong for us to go on acting as though this does not affect all humanity.  We are all responsible.

“He said that raping me is his prayer to God. I said to him, ‘What you’re doing to me is wrong, and it will not bring you closer to God.'”

F, 15-year-old who, like many other girls of the Yazidi religious minority, was captured and held as a sex slave by Islamic State fighters.

It is far beyond the moment when exploitation of people can be acceptable.  We must create a safe haven for all women everywhere on earth.  This is far beyond a moral issue. It is a means to our survival as a species.  The enormous paradox that exists in this shameful rationalization of malevolent behavior is that all of these rapists have families mothers, daughters, sisters.  From this time on all violent offenders must be treated as criminals subject to trial before international law.  This is the only means to end slavery.
