    Many parts of the world still have a long way to go in the area of women's rights. I think this family might experience a backlash from other residents in their community for shunning their daughter and that would be a good thing. I'm sure the local media will be all over this.

    Terrible indeed. Makes you hang your head when you consider how often something like this (moreso speaking of the family's reaction) happens in African nations. Especially when you consider that, in Zimbabwe at least, it is "common knowledge" among the inhabitants that raping a virgin will cure a man of HIV/AIDS.

    If that's not a horrific thought, I don't know what is.
