At 3 pm on October 20, 2019, 10-year-old Qi called her mother saying that she had just finished her art class and that she was on the way home. It’s a 15-minute walk. At 3:50 pm, with still no sign of her daughter, Mrs.Wang went out to look for her with family members. At around 7 pm, they found Qi in a bush a few hundred meters away from home, covered in blood and pants off.
A 23-year-old rape victim has died following injuries she sustained when she was set ablaze on her way to a court in the city of Unnao, in the state of Uttar Pradesh, India, authorities said on Saturday. The 23-year-old woman was heading to court to testify against her rapists when a group of men, including two of the suspects, attacked her and set her on fire. She had been threatened on several occasions since she reported the incident.
It was Dr. Maya Angelou who said that at age 7 she believed her voice will kill people. Why would Maya say this? When she was 7, her moms lover raped her (such a painful memory). She was so scared to report or give a name because he said “I will kill anyone you tell”… thankfully Maya’s older brother convinced her to talk. She did and he was arrested but released the next day or so.
