A story like this should make you realize, or at least understand, what true oppression of women is.

A sixteen year old girl in Morrocco committed suicide because she didn't want to marry her rapist. A man 10 years older than the girl he raped had a choice, jail or marry the girl.

Why would he have a choice to marry the girl? It would keep her honor in tact.

Women in the U.S. understand oppression. They have to fight to get contraception for free. Well, they can get free contraception from clinics or planned parenthood, but they have to fight to get their own insurance to provide free contraception. Barbaric, isn't it?

Note that it is not barbaric that the government tells you that you must buy a certain product or go to jail. That is compassionate.
