Weemen fechtin back

Very disturbin story - rang a bell wi me, cos yin o the things Ah envisage in the novel (juist as a minor pairt o a sub-plot) is opportunistic violence by weemen agin men in thir misogynistic kintras. Mystery of the sudden surge in acid attacks on MEN by WOMEN

Anither seemilar story, involvin a Hindu quine this time. She pysont her faimily efter they beat up the untouchable loun she wis tryin tae elope wi. 

Anither wumman fechts back, shoots a rapist deid in Turkey.   

An here's a photie somebody postit on Facebook o an Iranian mullah beaten up by lassies. An anither minor, bit tellin, incident in Iran.

An whit aboot a sequel. Maks it aw worthwhile. Mony thanks, Rab.
