On Any Given Day: The Ugly File

After listening to Obama speak tonight about intervention in the humanitarian crisis in Libya, i pondered how there is a humanitarian crisis for women across time, geography, economics. What makes a crisis important enough to intervene?

(A woman's body is worth less than a dead rat in Congo)

KC Star, Monday, March 28, 2011:

"Rape Infuriates previous victim
A Wichita rape victim is outraged that her attacker was paroled, allowing him to pose as a police officer and sexually assault another woman in kansas City, Kan. 55 year-old Wesley Watson raped Lisa Clancy Nolla in 1980 when she was 14 years old. Now Watson faces an April Sentencing after he pleaded guilty to several charges in the December attack."  more from previous victim HERE   excerpt: Nolla wrote in a 2004 letter to the Kansas Parole Board that although Watson appeared to have no major behavior problems in prison, "when you look at his behavior while in the community it is a different story. This man seeks out, follows and attacks his prey." "He only does well in prison because there are no children or young women to violate, but the minute he is released he is out on the prowl again," she wrote. "I am here today to save the future victim of Wesley Watson.


...40 year-old woman found dead on her porch...

Jurors get grisly case...Four persons, including two brothers ages 10 and 7, were killed ...in a scene that looked like the scene of a slaughter..The youngest brother had been stabbed 131 times...

Tell me why this pattern of violence and disregard against women will end...?
