❝Nothing makes me happier than seeing Super Junior acting like dorks.❞
I don’t know if Tumblr’s on this yet, but a 15 year old girl in the Maldives has been sentenced to be publicly whipped one hundred times for extra-marital sex. The girl in question has been raped for years by her stepfather, who also murdered the baby she bore as a result of his regular assault.
This petition needs another 400000 signatures before it can be sent to the president of the Maldives. It aims to force him to change the law and save this young woman. He is already feeling global pressure on the matter, but this petition will go for the jugular - the Maldives’ high-earning tourist industry. Once the petition has 1 million signatures, it will be presented to President Waheed with the promise that if he does not step in to save her, the island’s reputation will be severely threatened by ads in travel magazines and online.
This, unfortunately, is not a rare occurence in the Maldives. A horrifying one in three women between the ages of 15 and 49 have suffered physical or sexual abuse - and yet they’ve convicted precisely zero rapists in the past three years.
So please, sign. Let’s make a difference.
