Brazil femicide law signed by President Rousseff
Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff has signed a new law which sets tough new penalties for the killing of women and girls. President Rousseff said the new law is part of a zero tolerance policy toward the killing of women. She said 15 women were killed daily in Brazil. Murders linked to domestic violence will carry sentences of between 12 and 30 years. In other cases - such as the killing of a pregnant woman, a woman who's just given birth, girls under 14, or women over 60 - the new law provides for even longer jail terms.

Delhi rapist says victim shouldn't have fought back
In 2012 an Indian student was violently raped on a moving bus in Delhi and died of horrific internal injuries. Leslee Udwin spoke to one of the rapists on death row while spending two years making a film about the case. She came away shocked by India's treatment of women - but inspired by those seeking change. (Webmaster's comment: Read this story if you dare. Women are less than nothing. India's barbaric culture makes rape a virtue. The men are proud of it. They consider it just punishment for any female behavior they don't approve of. And if women resist they should be killed. Even beggar children are considered fair game.)
