“Women have very little idea of how much men hate them.”*

I read several days ago about the murder of Du’a Khalil Aswad and the video that a man had taken of the event but I couldn’t bring myself to watch it. However, the mistake I then made was to push the matter away and do nothing. It took a post from Joss Whedon on Whedonesque to remind myself of it and do a small something about a world in which some men hate some women because they are women.

*Germaine Greer in The Female Eunuch in the chapter Loathing and Disgust (I suspect Du’a knew in the last hideous thirty minutes of her life).

ETA: this is great because it’s true. You could play feminist bingo with this.
