7 Signers. Must be the fact can only use numbers in post codes. But they should really work to end all rapes.

It is not US only, if you click on the 'outside the us' box, a list of countries appears. As for the postcode problem, I sometimes get a bit creative and use the most famous postcode of them all. When it is for a good cause....

In iIreland we do not have postcodes and sometimes my petitions were accepted with "none available" but other times not... and then someone said " insert 1234" and that's what I do now ... though I add 5 ...and it works.

Signed, Thank you Monica. I find it truly disgusting that the rape figures in South Africa are so high and cannot imagine living with that daily threat of such violation.

These hate crimes against all women must stop now. How in the world does one think a lesbian is going to become heterosexual because of a traumatic rape episode? Rape against all women is a crime and needs to be seen as such.
