    India Gang-Rape Victim Dies In Singapore Hospital

    Never discussed or considered is the long term effects of rape or abuse. There are many people who live only half a life because of what they were able to survive.

    This poor girl - how I wish her torture and death could mean something but we have always had and will always have rape.

    Sadly this is what happens when women are viewed worthless and less then second class citizens.

    This was more than a rape, "the men also beat the couple and inserted an iron rod into the woman's body, resulting in severe organ damage."

    What I find more egregious is that women are often blamed for the rape or the police and prosecutors do not pursue complaints as they should.

    omg...what that poor woman had to endure...I can not even begin to fathom the horror that poor thing went through.

    Seperately, there was a story (which was included in this one) I had read earlier this evening at the HuffPost about another Indian girl that had been gang raped-and then pressured by POLICE officers to accept the rape and actually marry one of the men that had raped her.
    I was completely dumbfounded when I read that...I did not even know how to respond to it...as I still can not wrap my head around it even now.

    Apparently is some parts of India it is customary to marry the rapist. In one case the village elders and police were attempting "settle" the situation, "the police told her family that, because they were poor, they would not be able to fight the matter in court. “They kept putting pressure on my family to take money or marry the accused or just somehow settle the matter,”

    I am so sorry to hear this. I can't imagine the horror of her final hours. The scum who did this to her must be brought to justice.

    Oh I know how other women, especially the poor, are treated in certain cultures...even if it is 'customary' to marry her rapist, it still does not make it 'ok' for that to be forced upon any human woman from any country or province therein.
