Having just read this article, I am horrified but not surprised.
So now women protesters are subject to virginity tests and torture to confirm the preconception that no single woman of moral standing (i.e. a virgin) would participate in the protests. Also is the implication that as long as they weren't virgin's, they could not claim sexual assault or rape by military personnel.
From a senior general,
"We didn't want them to say we had sexually assaulted or raped them, so we wanted to prove that they weren't virgins in the first place," the general added. "None of them were."
It is really sad. Unfortunately, I don't think the situation there will improve any time soon, but the seeds have been sown for change. Hopefully highlighting these issues in the rest of the world will help.
