Amazing courage. While we talk here in America of a "war on women" in some parts of the world you can be killed simply for expressing an opinion.
I hope she recovers and both her and her family get out of that region before she is killed. It is horrific to think that there is still cultures that allow female genital mutilation, discount women's rights to drive or be in public without an escort or prevent women from getting an education. Of course, my assessment is judgemental based upon my principals which they obviously do not share.
Until parts of the world enter the current century, I don't see how we can expect them to move forward and offer a positive contribution to the world. I would bet the majority of people in her home would support her but are fearful of the repercussions.
