Marcelo Tas [pt] compares two recent incidents of violence against women in different parts of the planet. In Abaetetuba, Brazil, a teenager was incarcerated in a cell with 20 male inmates. It had the predicable result, the girl was raped repeatedly. In Saudi Arabia, a girl was found in a car with a male company and was raped by the 7 men who spotted her. “Who is closest to the Middle Ages: Brazil or Saudi Arabia?”.
