    Thats a nice little cause... Its terrible females are seen as only objects in other country. Our country, the USA, always creates a standard to liberate inhumane practices(In our country only).
    In Iraq a female can not walk alone in streets, can not wear revealing clothing, or that lady is faced with blasphemy -- The crime also does not come with just a slap on the wrist, but that female who committed blasphemy will be stoned or publicly beaten, and oddly enough, it will be televised so every other female would know not to do that.
    Numerous third-world countries do public executions and when its seen on a TV, it is not against those people doing the execution... Its against the female who committed the crime. Thats the reality in third world countries... They don't have freedom to blog or be themselves.

    It is not USA's right to be able to force countries into stopping these unethical things, but it should be. The people who do those insane things... THAT IS THEIR CULTURE. USA does not oppress countries(As so many blog about saying). USA does not force countries to submit to not doing cruelty. If USA forced countries to be humane, that would be called OPPRESSION.
    USA is only in Iraq because Iraqi Guerrilla forces possibly flew aircraft into our buildings and Iraq diplomatics are begging for USA to help them with unruly people. USA doesn't want to be over there in Iraq, but they asked the USA for help.

    -Remember USA can not be oppressive.

    -USA can only help when asked or attacked.

    Ironic it is, for USA only to be able to sit and watch... Ironic it is, for diplomats in India to only ask for USA favors in trading, but never to help in more humane practices.

    You can't do nothing about that, but I'm sure that country will take your money -- No problem.

    Thank you for your comment. As an NGO, we do what we can to encourage policymakers to make a difference in the lives of women. Also, it is about letting the world know that these injustices against women exist. There is power in numbers and we welcome any support.
