This is Reyhaneh Jabbari. She is a 26-year-old woman from Iran. She was arrested in 2007 for killing of Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi who she said tried to rape her.
She was sentenced to death by a Tehran court in 2009 and her execution verdict was upheld by Iran’s Supreme Court. Her case drew international outcry and sparked a petition urging her release, which has garnered over 190,000 signatures.
Today is 30 September 2014. And today Reyhaneh was going to be executed. But people reacted this situation and the reactions grow too fast and the execution of Reyhaneh has been postponed to 10 days later.
But there is no guarentee of it. I just want to say, please share this quickly -with everyone- and please spread awareness. We can make a difference, we can stop this!
Islam gives the permission of killing rapist during rape. Because Islam says it’s “SELF DEFENCE”. But Iran doesn’t say that. And then they say it’s Islamıc law. This is not Islam, this is not Islamic law. This is despising women! This is despising humanity! Please reblog this please please! We can make a difference please!
Thank you so much!!!
Set this warrior free.

Tumblr, can you please spread awareness of the riots currently breaking out in Glasgow city centre (in George Square) -
Union supporters have begun rioting in the city waving Union Jacks, burning Saltires, saluting Nazis and attacking nationalists.
Absolutely nothing is being reported on BBC News, Sky News or ITV news. Spread the word!
Update - It’s 4.00pm on 20/9
The riots have stopped for now and some people have been arrested. Few reports of injury and despite supposed stabbings, no one has been killed. The riots may start up again tonight, in which case everyone needs to sty indoors. Keep safe Glasgow.
do not sexualize young girls.
yes, I am kink shaming you.
because you should be ashamed of yourself
for sexualizing young girls, and
no one’s sexual liberation is more important
than protecting young girls.
By now I hope at least some of you have heard of Javier Payne, a 14-year-old black boy from the Bronx who was attacked by the NYPD last weekend as he was walking home from a hookah shop in his neighborhood.
Cops said he was fighting with another boy, a 13-year-old neighbor in the area.
So what do you do when two boys are fighting?
Well, if you’re the NYPD, and the boys in question are black, you throw one of them through a window, puncturing his lung. As he lies there with blood filling his lungs, you handcuff him and refuse to call an ambulance. When you do call an ambulance, you enter the protocol for an adult drunk, instead of a dying child. When the ambulance comes, you refuse to let the paramedics uncuff him. Even as the paramedics explain that this boy is dying, you argue that he’s faking it and that he deserves to die there on the street for fighting with another boy. When you finally do let the paramedics uncuff him and take him to the hospital, you fail to report that you threw him through a glass window despite dozens of eye-witnesses reporting the opposite. When you are called upon by the community to account for your actions, you decide to do an “internal investigation” - therefore being accountable to no one outside your division. You encourage the deregulation of police conduct and refuse to let outsiders investigate how you train your officers.
And what do you do, if you’re a concerned citizen who is tired of seeing this? You write Bill de Blasio and you ask him to start an outside investigation into police brutality. Or at least that’s what I did. And if you want to cosign what I wrote him, you can do that here. And if you want to signal boost that for Javier Payne, you can do that too. You can sign my petition letter here.
Republicans are scary but republicans under the age of 20 are even scarier
Yeah liberals are terrified of educated youth
did your dad tell you that
NOT EVEN SATAN could have thought this up. Israelis cheering on massacres likes its a sport.
Contrary to what the media tell you this is how safe they are from ‘khamas rockets’ and this is how little regard they have for human life.
They wll not stop until they wipe Palestine off the map. The ethic cleansing of Palestine continues. Israel is targeting babies, children, women and men - no one is excluded - while the world sits by and watches.
Not so much as a squeak from Obama. Or anyone. They only care about Israeli lives.
There is no lower than this.
LOL white people sat on their ass whipping brown people as they built america.
Seriously, all you have to do is google railroad workers and everything but white people come up. Just because white people OWNED the railroads doesn’t mean they did shit. Slaves did a hell of a lot more than pick cotton, and there were other brown people here other than black people who also built america. White people literally sailed to another continent to avoid doing work.
Victims of sexual assault expect privacy. But 16-year-old Jada was violated all over again once explicit images from her rape surfaced on Twitter. So Jada decided to take her story public.
“There’s no point in hiding,” the Houston teen tells KHOU. “Everybody has already seen my face and my body, but that’s not what I am and who I am.”
I’m sharing this because certain people on twitter NEEDS TO BE STOP! Specially the ignorant side of black twitter! Every time something bad happen to a young black women or black girl twitter is quickly to explode it into something bigger! And Jada story is one of them! She’s a 16 yearls high school student she could be your sister,cousin, neighbor, or classmate! This tragic thing happened to her and these ignorant people on twitter looking for followers exploit this to point where the disgusting hashtag was created #jadapose. People tweeting pictures of themselves in the pose in which Jada was found! What I find even worse about this its that a lot of the people doing these poses are young black men and women. Something like this happen to someone who could possibly be your sister and instead of asking for justice you rather create a new meme? And some of them even argue “oh how do you know she got rape?” Does it matter? a picture of an underage girl laying on the floor looking like she’s passed out is not something be laughed at EVER! Like @_kimberrrly said ”A rape victim’s trauma is not grounds for a new internet meme. Pls do not partake in such ignorance. Report #jadapose pictures.”
I’m happy and proud of Jada for speaking and not letting this disgusting thing becoming any bigger
Which brings me to what I’m trying to ask or say here when will sexual assault towards black girls and young black women will be taking serious by young black people?
i truly don’t understand what kind of world we live in.This is absolutely horrific and abhorrent. Look at how few notes this has. Now watch as the so-called feminists and defenders of women on this site stay silent. The black woman’s body has no value to this society except for how it can be exploited and dehumanized. This is straight up misogynoir. This is an egregious act. This shows how sick our culture is. Rape culture is so pervasive and normalized that many will see nothing wrong with this new meme, much like as was the case with ‘Trayvoning’ (though that was white and non-Black POC racialized violence). This is also why I stay off of twitter.
Audrie Pott, a young woman with a promising life ahead of her, was brutally raped at a high school party while in a defenseless state. The three assailants took pictures of the assault in progress and shared those pictures in an attempt to shame and bully Audrie at school. Just 8 days after the pictures emerged, Audrie took her own life. Since this time, the perpetrators have admitted their crimes, their identities were concealed and a criminal sentence was imposed of only 30 and 45 days of incarceration due to their juvenile status.
SB 838 would accomplish the following:
- If a juvenile is convicted of a sex crime, when the victim is unconscious they would receive a minimum sentence of 2 years incarceration in a juvenile facility
- Juvenile sex crime court proceeding would be open to the public, with names able to be published in the media. This decision rests with the victim, should they want the perpetrators identity to be public.
- If a juvenile is convicted of a sex crime, and also took pictures of the crime and shared them, then this would be an enhancement to the crime, resulting in an additional sentence of up to one year, plus additional fines of up to $10,000.
WE CAN NOT LET HER SUFFERING BE IN VAIN. LET SOMETHING GOOD COME OUT OF THIS TRAGEDY.
thank you to wonders-in-wandering for telling me about this horrible incident
THIS ONLY NEEDS 760/75,000 SIGNATURES LEFT PLEASE SIGNAL BOOST AND SIGN
Just because it sells doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
I didn’t mention anything about quality, only sales figures.
This is fantastic. I love it. There are guys out there who are so threatened by the prospect of a female-led title doing well that when it does do well their response is “well it’s probably not any good.”
Fun fact: throughout the bulk of Western history, commercial success was considered a mark of quality for a piece of art. Disdain for commercial success curiously came into vogue in Western critical circles at about the same time that female creators started making major inroads in producing commercially successful art and literature - and many historians believe that this is no coincidence.
In other words, dismissing commercially successful works on the grounds that commercial success is no measure of quality is not merely a typical response to works by female creators: it has been argued that the very notion of holding commercially successful works in disdain simply for the fact of that success was, itself, invented in order to shift the goalposts and keep women out of the “real artists” club.
I still need to read this series so bad
I love how as soon as someone mentions that, in contrast to what comic bros claim, a WoC-centric title that doesn’t cater to straight white cis men is selling incredibly well, all of a sudden they’re concerned with whether or not the comic is “good” or “quality”. LMFAO ok.
In a bold comparative analysis of TheNarrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, Jada Williams, a 13-year old eighth grader at School #3 in Rochester, New York, asserted that in her experience, today’s education system is a modern-day version of slavery. According to the Fredrick Douglass Foundation of New York, the schools’ teachers and administrators were so offended by Williams’ essay that they began a campaign of harassment—kicking her out of class and trying to suspend her—that ultimately forced her parents to withdraw her from the school.
In her essay, which was written for a contest, Williams reflected on what Douglass heard his slave master, Mr. Auld, telling his wife after catching her teaching Douglass how to read. “If you teach that nigger (speaking of myself) how to read, there will be no keeping him,” Auld says. “It will forever unfit him to be a slave. He would at once become unmanageable, and of no value to his master.”
Williams wrote that overcrowded, poorly managed classrooms prevent real learning from happening and thus produces the same results as Mr. Auld’s outright ban. She wrote that her white teachers—the vast majority of Rochester students are black and Hispanic, but very few teachers are people of color—are in a “position of power to dictate what I can, cannot, and will learn, only desiring that I may get bored because of the inconsistency and the mismanagement of the classroom.”

I’m so freaking proud of this child.
“The conservative Frederick Douglass Foundation gave Williams a special award, saying that her essay ‘actually demonstrates that she understood the autobiography.’ They have also reached out to the school for an explanation of the 13-year-old’s treatment.”
She spoke truth to power.
Good job helping make her argument more solid by kicking her out of class and forcing her parents to take her out of school.
"One fun fact I learned while on the air with Keith Olbermann was that humans on the Internet are scumbags. People say children are cruel, but I was never made fun of as a child or an adult. Suddenly, my disability on the world wide web is fair game. I would look at clips online and see comments like, "Yo, why’s she tweakin?" "Yo, is she retarded?" And my favorite, "Poor Gumby-mouth terrorist. What does she suffer from? We should really pray for her." One commenter even suggested that I add my disability to my credits: screenwriter, comedian, palsy."

These are the victims of the May 23, 2014 Isla Vista, CA killings. They’ll receive too little face time for their loss.

I’m sick of seeing the shooter’s name and face everywhere who gives a shit about that piece of trash
honor the victims and don’t immortalize a piece of garbage that isn’t worth a second look
