Woman lawyer for Asifa’s family threatened & in fear for her life


From the demeaning response so many commentators gave the #MeToo movement, it’s clear that too many do not understand or they support the role that rape & violence, including murder, play in subordinating women. Violence is ubiquitous in every woman’s life. This young woman is the lawyer for Asifa’s family, She not only has to probe the savage violence of this crime but she talks here about being threatened herself by high caste lawyers in Jammu. She is afraid of being brutalized or murdered. Part of the international campaign to demand justice for Asifa is demanding protection for this young woman in fear for her life for standing against the rape & murder of a child.
