Thank you guys for letting me know about this! I’m not up to date on everything worldwide as I work wild hours. Will look into this now. 

She later went on to write, I am disgusted to learn the details of what happened to Noor Mukadam. And even more, horrified that this level of violence no longer surprises me considering the ongoing violence against women in Pakistan and India.

 She replied I am disgusted to learn the details of what happened to Noor Mukadam. And even more, horrified that this level of violence no longer surprises me considering the ongoing violence against women in Pakistan and India. I talk about this a fair bit and continue to urge men in the public eye to speak out about this. About the fact that girls and women deserve equal rights and basic safety at the very least.

This is men’s problem, but only we pay the price for it. I’ve included a link to this particular story if you care to read it. I long for a time when we are shocked to hear about men’s violence against women in Pakistan.
