It’s hard to know what to say

Two young women – girls really – who were beaten brutally for attempting to flee their rapists.  Words have officially failed me so I’ll leave it to Ophelia.

“On Saturday, at the Women for Afghan Women shelter, at a secret location in Kabul, there were four fugitive child brides. All had been beaten, and most wept as they recounted their experiences.”

Yes I daresay they did.
