abuse/personal terrorism

14 May

This piece is visually powerful, showing what little worth women really have in this part of the world, but the text in the front offers interesting ideas.
It compares global terroristic attacks to personal attacks in a sense. I think this can be related to students if we discuss the ways women are subjugated in other parts of the world, global stratification. Also, in the US abuse is not nearly as disfiguring, and physical abuse can heal with little or no scars, but can be very mentally and emotionally scarring. Covert vs overt abuse (of course, both undoubtedly occur in this area of the world).
Rejected men can throw acid on women, wow. It makes dating in the US look pretty appealing!
