We’re discussing the Little Falls incident. We deserved that apology, trying to take away our voting. Women struggled for centuries to earn this right…..disrespectful -___-
One of the best female comedy duos in my opinion: Laverne and Shirley.

Woman forced to remarry the husband who threw acid in her face after she divorced him for being unfaithful
Nurbanu had divorced her unfaithful and violent spouse after catching him with another woman. Eight days later, she was cooking at home in Bangladesh when he pulled up on a motorbike and doused her with acid, leaving her blind and disfigured. The 36-year-old now has to endure living with her former spouse again after his mother forced her to sign an affidavit to have him released from prison following the attack. Nurbanu’s husband of 18 years went into hiding after mutilating his former wife, but was caught ten months later and jailed for a year, according to a report on The Huffington Post.
‘His mother paid for his release on bail. She made me sign an affidavit to have him released. She used my sons to convince me to marry him again. ‘People would think a husband would take care of a blind wife. But this doesn’t happen,’ said Nurbanu, who is from Satkhira in south west Bangladesh. She also said her spouse continues to beat and threaten her, adding: ‘This is how my days go by.’
Nurbanu, who is unable to even prepare a meal for herself following her husband’s devastating attack, is one of thousands of women to fall victim to acid violence in Bangladesh in recent years. Financial disputes, rejected marriage proposals and marital rows are common motives behind the attacks in the country. The survivors of acid attacks have very little chance of finding work. Unmarried women who are victims of acid violence are also unlikely to marry in the future, it says. Along with the visible scars left by acid, attack victims endure psychological trauma and, in many cases, social isolation and ostracism.
Monira Rahman, CEO of the Acid Survivors’ Foundation (ASF) in Bangladesh, has worked with the victims of acid and petrol attacks in the country for the past 14 years and says: ‘Only by empowering women and ensuring equality we will have a society which has zero tolerance for violence against women’. The Bangladesh-based ASF has teamed up with the charity Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO), which supports the foundation by training local medical professionals in treating burns, setting up counselling services, and by training women the organisation supports to produce garments that help reduce scarring, which they can then sell to help them earn a living.
When someone asks why feminism is needed just point to this woman!
Honestly this is really tragic.
