Human rights organization Amnesty International reports from war-ravaged Somalia that a female stoned to death recently after reporting being raped was 13, not 23.
The girl, Aisha Ibrahim Duhulow, reported being raped by three men to the al-Shabab militia that controls Kismayo. She was then accused of adultery and detained. None of the trio she accused of raping her was arrested (of course).
From eye-witness accounts, the stoning was unusually cruel. Women or girls in Azgard who reported being raped could expect the same treatment, or worse.
My author has not yet named the fifth book in the Green Stone of Healing(R) series, but it details how one young privileged Toltec lady of high birth met a similar gruesome fate after becoming pregnant out of wedlock.
I was hoping that human society would have evolved further by now. Females still suffer under the lethal double standard that prevailed in my time. This has to change.
