Case 1 :

 Posted: 20 March 2013
It's hard to believe, but a 15-year-old rape survivor has been sentenced to be whipped 100 times by a court in the Maldives! Let's put an end to this lunacy by hitting the government where it hurts: their tourism industry.

The girl’s stepfather raped her for years and then murdered the baby she bore. Now the court is punishing her for “sex outside marriage”. President Waheed of the Maldives is already feeling global pressure on this, but we can force him to help save this girl and change the law to spare other victims this fate. This is how we’re winning the War on Women – by standing up every time an outrage like this happens.

Tourism is the big earner for the Maldives elite, including government ministers. With a million-strong petition to President Waheed, we’ll threaten the islands' reputation through hard-hitting ads in travel magazines and online until he abolishes this outrageous law. Sign now and share this campaign to get us to a million.

  • Case 2 : 
    19 year old Tunisian Amina who posted a topless photo of herself bearing the slogan “my body belongs to me, and is not the source of anyone's honour” has been threatened with death.

    Islamist cleric Adel Almi, president of Al-Jamia Al-Li-Wassatia Tawia Wal-Islah has called for Amina's flogging and stoning to death saying Amina's actions will bring misfortune by causing "epidemics and disasters" and "could be contagious and give ideas to other women..."

     We the undersigned unequivocally defend Amina, and demand that her life and liberty are protected and that those who have threatened her will be immediately prosecuted
