This has to be one of the best posts I have ever read, spontaneous, contextual, written from the heart. You can feel the passion and the outrage oozing from it. This is no superficial protest about politics, rights, or feminism; it is a raging condemnation of a culture which ignores the value of a woman’s education to society as well as to the self esteem of women themselves. There are too many nations on earth where such norms are prevalent yet there are more protests globally about who becomes president of the USA or Britain leaving the EU. This is a far more important issue and Pradita deserves lots more support globally for speaking out, so …… GET ON WITH IT AND SUPPORT!
