"The kind men and boys are treating women, girls, female childs and babies worldwide, shows you what kind of men and boys they are. It's not a statment about you as a female person, it's a statement about them as cruel criminals, heartless devils and heinous perverts."
-Anita Kanitz

"As a mother, I say, it's enough. How many sleepless nights have I spent with tears over how female babies, female children, girls and women are cruelly enslaved, abused, abused, raped, tortured, mutilated. It's enough, enough tears and time for action. Mothers of the whole world stand up against this injustice and fight. It is enough, we must put an end to these gruesome crimes and this cruel injustice forever, we must do it, for the future of our daughters and granddaughters! Fight, it's our only and last chance."
-Anita Kanitz

"The purpose of life is to obey the hidden command which ensures harmony among all and creates an ever better world. We are not created only to enjoy the world, we are created in order to evolve the cosmos. "

"Even though they make up half the population, women and girls have endured discrimination in most societies for thousands of years. In the past, women were treated as property of their husbands or fathers - they couldn't own land, they couldn't vote or go to school, and were subject to beatings and abuse and could do nothing about it. Over the last hundred years, much progress has been made to gain equal rights for women around the world, but many still live without the rights to which all people are entitled."
-- Robert Alan Silverstein


There are many crimes against women, girls and female childs: Domestic and sexual violence, street harassment, workplace harassment, catcalling, Eve teasing, tarrarush gamea, rape culture, mass and gang rapes, war rapes, child rapes, marital rapes, dowry murder, forced and child marriages, FGM, sex slavery, women, girls and child trafficking, forced prostitution, rape pornography, online harassment, sadistic stalking, domestic and sexual murder, acid attacks, femicide, female infanticide, daily hate speech and sexism, sadistic and forced sexual practices, lack of freedom, education and human rights, forced dress codes like chador and burqa, victim blaming of assault, stalking, bullying and rape victims,witch hunts, widow murders, executions like stoning for rape and assault victims, imprisonment and punishment of female victims..
Violence against women, girls and female childs - particularly intimate partner violence and sexual violence - are major public health problems and violations of women's human rights and childrens rights..
Recent global prevalence figures indicate that about 1 in 3 (35%) of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime.
Most of this violence is intimate partner violence. Worldwide, almost one third (30%) of women who have been in a relationship report that they have experienced some form of physical and/or sexual violence by their intimate partner.
Globally, as many as 38% of murders of women are committed by an intimate partner.
Violence can negatively affect women’s physical, mental, sexual and reproductive health, and may increase vulnerability to HIV.
Factors associated with increased risk of perpetration of violence include low education, child maltreatment or exposure to violence in the family, harmful use of alcohol, attitudes accepting of violence and gender inequality.
Factors associated with increased risk of experiencing intimate partner and sexual violence include low education, exposure to violence between parents, abuse during childhood, attitudes accepting violence and gender inequality.
There is evidence from high-income settings that school-based programmes may be effective in preventing relationship violence (or dating violence) among young people.
In low-income settings, primary prevention strategies, such as microfinance combined with gender equality training and community-based initiatives that address gender inequality and relationship skills, hold promise.
Situations of conflict, post conflict and displacement may exacerbate existing violence, such as by intimate partners, and present additional forms of violence against women.

Global violence uniquely affects the girl child. Although international legal instruments have been in place for decades to protect the girl child, thousands of brutal acts of violence and neglect specifically targeting the girl child can be observed around the world on a daily basis. For centuries, girls who have barely attained adolescence have been forced into marriage, often with men many years their senior. As a minor, a girl child cannot legally give her consent to enter into such a partnership. They have suffered in female genital mutilation rituals. They are traded, bought, and sold across national borders as commodities to be put to use as prostitutes or slaves, or merely to be sold again at a profit. Many girls are even victimized before birth, as technology and greater access to medicine have given rise to prenatal sex selection and selection abortion based on sex. Girls continue to face the threat of sexual harassment and abuse in workplaces and schools. Their lives may be taken for the “honor” of their families for speaking to strangers or committing other minor transgressions. Violence against the girl child has become a powerful and all-too-common tactic in times of war and humanitarian disaster.

That is the reason why I am fighting my whole life for human rights, women and girls rights and children's rights. But it is not enough, day by day the world is getting a more dangerous and barbaric place for childs, girls and women! And the greatest danger on earth for all of us are the male humans, what a shame for humankind!

Femicide, misogyny, stalking, sexual violence, rape culture, hate speech is everywhere:

The rape of Dhaka : 1971, Numbers : 200,000 (Official) - 400,000

This is one of the most shameful war crimes in the history of humanity perpetrated by the Pakistani army (supported by the Razakars) during the Bangladesh liberation war of 1971. During the war, a fatwa in Pakistan declared that the Bengali 'freedom fighters' were Hindus and that their women could be taken as the booty of war ('gonimoter maal').

The total number of rapes is estimated to be between 200,000 to 400,000 during a nine month period. Some descriptions present an unbelievably gory picture of the massacre. Victims aged 8 to 75 were also kidnapped and held in special camps where they were repeatedly assaulted. According to some reports, the soldiers at one point used their bayonets to rape women.

The Pakistani army also raped Bengali males. The men, when passing through a checkpoint, would be ordered to prove they were circumcised, and this is where the rapes usually happened.

The Rape of Nanking : 1937 - 20,000–80,000

*(Some estimates go as high as 100,000) The International Military Tribunal for the far East suggests the figure to be 20,000.
This happened during a six week period in the Sino-Japanese war. A large portion of these rapes were systematized in a process in which soldiers would go from door to door, searching for girls, with many women being captured and gang raped. The women were often killed immediately after being raped, often through explicit mutilation[50] or by penetrating vaginas with bayonets, long sticks of bamboo, or other objects. Young children were not exempt from these atrocities and were cut open to allow Japanese soldiers to rape them.

The Rwandan Genocide : 1994 - 500,000

This happened over the course of 100 days. During the 1994 genocide, Rwandan women were subjected to sexual violence on a massive scale, perpetrated by members of the infamous Hutu militia groups known as the Interahamwe, by other civilians, and by soldiers of the Rwandan Armed Forces (Forces Armées Rwandaises, FAR), including the Presidential Guard. Administrative, military and political leaders at the national and local levels, as well as heads of militia, directed or encouraged both the killings and sexual violence to further their political goal: the destruction of the Tutsi as a group. This gave rise to the coinage of the term “Genocidal rape”.
During the conflict Hutu extremists released hundreds of patients from hospitals, who were suffering from AIDS, and formed them into "rape squads". The intent was to infect and cause a "slow, inexorable death". Survivors have testified that the transmission of the HIV virus was a deliberate act by talking about how the men, before they raped them, would say that they were not going to kill them directly but rather give them a slow death from AIDS. Two-thirds of a sample of 1,200 Rwandan genocide widows tested positive for HIV, and the infection rates in rural areas more than doubled after the genocide.

My own experiences with the male race are more as bad and heinous: I am a decent and decently dresses woman, normal and not sexy looking, a hard working loving mother and a very faithful wife, a very careful person, but that has not helped me all the time! Like it happens to all other females worldwide, dangerous and horny male idiots unfortunately crossed my way.
As a little schoolchild I was hunted and stalked by an unknown man (a perverted asshole) for years on my long and lonely way to school with a car. I ran for my life every time, the last time I met him I could only escape because I put his arm in the car door, and he called me with wild verbal abuse and death threats. After that, I was ill for a long time and my class teacher and classmates searched for the man every day because I had told them everything and they saw him one day. He escaped and was never seen again, he was unknown to all, even the license plate was not from our area!

At High School I was bullied, harassed, stalked and defamed by a narcisstic male classmate (a real douchebag). There were rape threats too. There were bystanders, because if a girl didn't want sex with guys, which are interested in her, then is something wrong with her. She is stupid and not normal, so they said. But I told everything to classmates and a female teacher and I got help. The stalker left the school without exam.

At my workplaces I must terminated three times my workplace, because there were rape attempts, sexual harassment and bullying by horny collegaues and bosses (male idiots and dickheads). The male idiots had helpers, because women are sluts and men are men, so they said. As a boss want to rape me at the workplace I hit and kicked him to the ground, because I was in a big rage. His pregnant wife was in hospital at that time. I told everything to another boss and a male colleague. They helped me. But I was bullied until now, so I changed after three years my workplace.

My perverse Muslim Australian ex-tenant (a real chicken shit) is stalking me with his friends for 14 years. The stalking includes rape threats, death threats, tracking, burglary attempts, slandering, cyberbullying, mailing of rape mails, rape and revenge porn videos of other females, hacker attacks, telephone terror, damages to property. His friends called me a slut and a whore and a Femnazi. Because he has very bad islamic contacts, my husband makes Criminal charges for suspected terrorism.

The reason was in all cases that I showed these men the could shoulder, women and girls are not sex toys and sexual garbage.

Our future must be to blame and punish the culprits not the victims! Blaming the victims is not the solution, but it's common worldwide!
Victim blaming is not only done by men, victim blaming is also often done by other women. How can a woman in this world be so stupid to be not on her own side?

Misogyny, example the U.S., 2016, the Stanford rape case sparked outrage. The survivor’s harrowing 7,244-word narrative of her attack went viral on Buzzfeed and ignited a long-awaited national debate on sexual assault reform. Her story, uncut in its full 12-page form, saturated Twitter and Facebook feeds across the globe. In a rare instance, social media empowered this survivor’s voice to prevail louder than her attacker’s. But in the frenzy of social media we live in, victims of sexual assault typically have far less agency as peers and partygoers upload digital evidence of the assault while the victim’s voice is squashed and justice disregarded.

Cruel rape cases of Audrie Pott, Daisy Coleman and Retaeh Parson (raped and bullied to suicide):
Audrie Taylor Pott (May 27, 1997 – September 12, 2012) was a 15-year-old student at Saratoga High School in Saratoga, California, who died by suicide. She had been sexually assaulted at a party eight days earlier by three 16-year-old boys she knew, and nude pictures of her were posted online with accompanying bullying.
On September 30, 2014, California Governor Jerry Brown signed Audrie's Law, "a bill that increases penalties and decreases privacy protections for teens convicted of sex acts on someone who is passed out from drugs or alcohol or incapable of giving consent due to a disability"
Daisy Coleman, the center of a famous and controversial rape case in Maryville,, U.S., when she was 14, has started a website to educate young women about sexual assault, according to the Daily Mail.
She and childhood friend Paige Parkhurst, who also said she was raped that night in January 2012, have forgiven the boys involved, the Daily Mail reports.
Coleman and Parkhurst, who was then 13, accused boys in the town of sexually assaulting them during an alcohol-infused party at the home of a popular Maryville High football player. The case gained international attention after a seven-month investigation by The Kansas City Star.
On April 4, 2013, Rehtaeh Parsons, December 9, 1995 – April 7, 2013), a 17-year-old former Cole Harbour District High School student, attempted suicide by hanging at her home in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada, leading to a coma and the decision to switch her life support machine off on April 7, 2013. Her death has been attributed to online distribution of photos of an alleged gang rape that occurred 17 months prior to her suicide, in November 2011. On a Facebook page set up in tribute to her daughter, Parsons' mother blamed the four boys who allegedly raped and released images of her, the subsequent constant "bullying and messaging and harassment", and the failure of the Canadian justice system, for her daughter's decision to commit suicide.
There is no justice in our world for rape victims: The facts:
Such is the case in Audrie and Daisy, a new Netflix documentary detailing the heart wrenching stories of sexual assault victims Audrie Pott and Daisy Coleman. Both young women sustained horrifying trauma and were forced to relive the attacks day after day as classmates propagated images and videos of their assaults across the web. Between the relentless cyberbullying they faced and a lack of institutional support, Audrie committed suicide and Daisy was driven out of her hometown. In both cases, social media helped amplify victim-shaming and entrench the victim in a state of public suffering. Daisy Coleman was 14 when she was found by her mother, unconscious on her front porch in the snow. She was wearing just a T-shirt and leggings; her hair was frozen to the ground. The evening before, she and her best friend Paige Parkhurst, then 13, had been hanging out with 17-year-old Matthew Barnett and his friends, in his parents’ basement. What happened that night became a story that rocked Maryville, a small manufacturing town in the midwest, for months. Daisy was, by her account if not by the state of Missouri’s definition, raped. She says she had been too drunk to consent and blacked out an entire portion of the evening, when high-school football star Barnett claimed they had consensual sex. Paige was, in fact, raped; her 15-year-old unidentified attacker pleaded guilty in juvenile court. The families of both girls have endured a sustained campaign of abuse online since the story broke in 2012. The Colemans had their house burnt down, mutilated dead rabbits were dumped in Parkhurst’s car.
For film-making team Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk, Daisy’s story became depressingly familiar. “We had heard about these worst-case scenarios about high schools,” says Jon, “where quite young girls were being assaulted by people they thought were their friends and then bullied online about it, when the perpetrators took video and pictures.” One such case from the same year was that of Audrie Pott. The Californian 15-year-old had woken up at a house party, without her clothes on and her body covered in marker pen. Boys she had known since middle school sexually assaulted her while she was drunk and had passed out; photos of the incident circulated throughout the school. Eight days later, Pott killed herself.

The story of sexual assault and victimization through social media has unfortunately become commonplace. Between the universality of cellphones with cameras, the widespread cultural adoption of social media, victims are often trapped in a wrath of character assassination and name-calling long after their assault. To make matters worse, victims often feel overlooked by the criminal justice system. Rehtaeh Parsons endured insurmountable ridicule after photos of her rape were circulated. She killed herself, only 17 years old.

The most cruel sexual and domestic murder cases in history:

The Toolbox Killers

The evils on earth:
Lawrence Sigmund Bittaker (born September 27, 1940) and Roy Lewis Norris (born February 5, 1948) are American serial killers and rapists known as the Tool Box Killers, who together committed the kidnap, rape, torture, and murder of five teenage girls over a period of five months in southern California in 1979. The police found photos of 19 other unknown young women, perhaps the killers murdered many more women and girls.
The transcript of what happened to Shirley Ledford at the hands of Toolbox Killers Lawrence Bittaker and Roy Norris is the most disturbing thing you will ever come across.
An excerpt from the transcript:
“At this point, after Bittaker had forced Shirley to fellate him, repeated sounds of an administered beating, interspersed with loud screams can be heard as Bittaker savagely beat Shirley about the breasts and, to a lesser degree, head. Bittaker then extracted his pliers from the tool box. Shirley then emits several high-pitched, prolonged screams and cries of agony as Bittaker alternately squeezes and twists her labia, clitoris, nipples and breasts with the pliers. Bittaker then returns the pliers to the tool box. Banging sounds can also be heard throughout, which are believed to have been made as Shirley came into contact with the walls and inner contents of the van as she writhed and flailed.”
Ledford: My God! Please stop it! (Screams)
Bittaker: Is the recorder going?
Norris: Yeah!
Bittaker: Scream baby! Scream some, baby.
The names oft the cruel murdered, brutally mutilated with pliers, raped and tortured young girls are: Lucinda Lynn Schaefer, 16 years old, Andrea Joy Hall, 18 years old, Jackie Doris Gilliam, 15 years old and Jacqueline Leah Lamp, 13 years old, Shirley Lynette Ledford,16 years old.


Kelly Anne Bates

Killed, tortured and mutilated by a male monster:
Bates was horrifically tortured for days before her tormentor finally killed her. Below are a few examples of what she went through.
Kelly Anne Bates (18 May 1978 – 16 April 1996) was a British teenager who was murdered in Manchester on 16 April 1996 when aged 17. She was tortured over a period of four weeks, including having her eyes gouged from their sockets up to three weeks before her death, by her partner James Patterson Smith (born c. 1948) before being drowned in a bathtub.
She endured the following specific injuries:
• Scalding to her buttocks and left leg
• Burns on her thigh caused by the application of a hot iron
• A fractured arm
• Multiple stab wounds caused by knives, forks and scissors
• Stab wounds inside her mouth
• Crush injuries to both hands
• Mutilation of her ears, nose, eyebrows, mouth, lips and genitalia
• Wounds caused by a spade and pruning shears
• Both eyes gouged out
• Later stab wounds to the empty eye sockets
• Partial scalping


Junko Furuta

In the hands of hearthless evils:
Furuta was a 17-year-old Japanese girl whose case became known as the “concrete-encased high school girl murder case.” Furuta was kidnapped by four teenage boys and, aside from the brutality of the assaults against her, the most disturbing thing is that she was held at one of the kidnapper’s houses and his parents were present the entire time, knew what was going on, and did nothing to stop it.
Also extremely disturbing is that Furuta turned 17 while she was in captivity and enduring these horrors. There’s something tremendously upsetting about that.
To avoid concern over her abduction, the perpetrators forced Furuta to call her parents and tell them that she would be staying at a friend’s house for a while. Over the course of her confinement, Furuta was repeatedly raped, beaten, and tortured by her four captors until they killed her. The parents of Kamisaku were present in the home for at least a part of the time that Furuta was held captive, and though she pleaded with them for help, they did not intervene, later claiming that they feared their son too much to do so.
Furuta was held captive in the Minato residence for forty days, where she was abused, raped and tortured. They also invited and encouraged their other friends from Yakuza, to torment Furuta. According to their trial statements, the four of them: Raped her over 400 times.
• Beat her several times.
• Starved her.
• Hanged her body from the ceiling and used her as a "punching bag"
• Dropped barbells onto her stomach several times.
• Forced her to eat live cockroaches and drink her own urine.
• Forced her to masturbate in front of them.
• Inserted foreign objects into her vagina and anus.
• Shoved a still-lit light bulb into her vagina.
• Set fireworks into her anus, vagina, mouth and ears.
• Burnt her vagina and clitoris with cigarettes and lighters.
• Burnt her eyelids with hot wax and lighters
• Tore off her left nipple with pliers.
• Pierced her breasts with sewing needles.

The killers hid her corpse in a 208-litre oil drum filled with concrete. They disposed of the drum in a tract of reclaimed land in Kōtō, Tokyo.

Raped and burned alive by perverse devils:
Murder of Oksana Makar
The murder of Oksana Makar took place in March 2012 in Ukraine, garnering extensive media coverage both at home and abroad and leading to mass protests. Oksana Makar, aged 18, was attacked by three men in the city of Mykolaiv on 8 March 2012: she was raped, strangled, set alight and left to die, though she survived another three weeks after being taken to hospital. Makar was transferred to the Donetsk Burn Center, a modern medical institution with an international reputation where a Swiss surgeon operated on her. Her right arm and both of her feet had to be amputated to stop gangrene from spreading.
On 29 March 2012, Makar died from her injuries. She was buried on 30 March in Luch. Since she died unmarried, she was buried in a wedding dress, in accordance with local tradition
Her case became a cause célèbre in Ukraine when only one of the attackers was charged by the police. The other two, whose parents were reported to be former government officials, were released on police bail, allegedly because of personal connections of their parents They were later rearrested after a public outcry and mass protests on 13 March. Protests demanding justice, to gather funds and encourage blood donations continued after the arrest as well. Three men – Yevgeny Krasnoshchok, 23, Maxim Prisyazhnyuk, 24, and Artem Pogasyan, 22 – were arrested on 11 March, but Prisyazhnyuk and Pogasyan were released on police bail. Shortly thereafter it was claimed in the media that the parents of Prisyazhnyuk and Pogasyan were ex-government officials from the Mykolaiv area and were connected to local politicians. It was reported that Prisyazhnyuk is the adopted son of a former head of district council and Pogasyan is the son of the regional prosecutor.[ (In their statement the police have confirmed the claim in respect of Prisyazhnyuk but stated that Pogasyan's mother is a librarian and his father was a manual laborer before his death in January 2012.) After protests on the streets of Mykolaiv and other cities against the police bail of Prisyazhnyuk and Pogasyan, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych intervened and an investigating team from Kiev, Ukraine's capital, then visited Mykolaiv. The two suspects released on police bail were re-arrested, and at least four local law-enforcement officials were sacked.
On 29 March an Ministry of Internal Affairs spokesman announced that all three men had been charged with Oksana Makar's rape and murder and faced life in jail.
On May 24, 2012, an open court trial on the case began at Mykolaiv's Tsentralnyi Raion court. During the trial Prysiazhniuk claimed that the sex with Makar was on mutual consent. He and Pogosian claimed that it was Krasnoshchiok who smothered the girl and then raped her again; Prysiazhniuk and Pogosian believed she was already dead when they carried her to the basement. On 30 October 2012 the prosecutor called for a life sentence for Krasnoshchiok, 15 years of imprisonment for Prysiazhniuk and 14 years of imprisonment for Pogosyan.
