Another Women's Issue

I find it tragic that the news media and all Americans can be so appalled at the imprisonment of those three unfortunate young girls in Cleveland but don’t care a whit about the many millions of women and girls who are living as virtual slaves on a daily basis all over the world because they are living under the Muslim culture. Where Islam is dominant, they are forced to wear burkas and must obey their male relatives on penalty of beatings or death. There is no recourse for them by the legal systems. When will, particularly the women of America, decide that this is of sufficient importance to take on as an issue, the same way they have been fighting for women’s rights for a century in America? They cannot afford to wait for the men to take issue except for a few like me. Jack B. Walters May 11, 2013
