Somalia: No Authority to Rape ACTION

Rape is horrific, but to be raped when the only authorities you can turn to for justice are your rapists -- it's the most crushing powerlessness. But together I think we can bring her hope.

Signed. By the way, this is the way it is in Islamic countries. The women are often jailed, tortured and killed for being the victims of rape. Hopefully petitions like this may make them realize that we notice.
