Rape in India

I came across an online petition to end rape in India, and wanted to share it with you . It is from Avaaz, who is trying to get 1,000,000 signatures to send to India — please sign!

The story behind this particular rape was a 23-year-old woman was gang raped on a bus for hours, including with a metal pole. Her rapists said she deserved it for trying to fight back. She survived the bus ride but has since died. PLEASE, please forward this link to anyone you know (including posting on facebook and twitter) who has a conscience and wants equality in India.

Thank you feminists, and gender egalitarians. Let’s make it to a million supporters!
