Update: Punjab Rape Case, Pakistan

http://www.nytimes.com/2002/07/17/international/asia/17RAPE.html [link via Mr. Robyn]

"This year so far, there have been 72 gang rapes and 93 other rapes documented in densely populated Punjab Province alone, according to the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan. The rapists are often higher-caste men, the victims usually lower-caste women, as in the case here."

my question is, what do western women's groups and organizations have to say about this? what do we, the Blog Sisters have to say about this? more importantly, what can we do about this?
