The Real War on Women: Seven Horrific Stories

Charlotte Hays

Sandra Fluke, the spoiled Georgetown Law grad, is the face of the war on women in the United States.  

For a sobering look at the real war on women, however, I commend to your attention an excellent piece in the Examiner that profiles seven horrific examples of a war on women Western pampered Western feminists prefer to ignore.

Journalist Ashe Schow ‘s mini-profiles are nothing short of heartrending. Here is just one of them:

Fakhra Younus was a former dancing girl who allegedly was attacked with acid in her sleep one night by her ex-husband. Younus left her husband due to physical and verbal abuse. Her husband, who had connections to the Pakistani government, was acquitted for the attack. Younus committed suicide in 2012, more than a decade after the attack.

Younus is far from the only victim of acid attacks. About 200 acid attacks against women occur in Pakistan every year, and at least 9,000 have occurred between 1994 and 2011, but that number is believed to be low due to underreporting.

And Pakistan is not the only place where attacks occur. In India and across Southeast Asia, acid attacks are prevalent.

I urge you to read the other six profiles.
