Somali woman who reported rape sentenced

Click the title to see the full story.

This is a horrendous example of a rape victim being punished for something she did not deserve and did not bring upon herself. It is an egregious human rights abuse, and standards like this on rape victims needs to be changed NOW or else they will continue to occur where the perpetrator goes unpunished, while the victim has to live a life of shame afterwards. Also, cheers to these journalists who bravely broke the story and stood up for the woman. However, the Somalian government is punishing them for their “crime” which is another massive human rights violation to oppress free speech.
