It is appalling for any woman to be mistreated or harmed. The thought that men, who should be protecting women, use their strength to take advantage of a woman is sickening and enraging. But what if the woman was also handicapped?
There is a clear difference in the way that men see women today; but an even larger contrast between the West and Muslim dominated cultures.
A wheelchair-bound woman was gang raped by six asylum seekers, Swedish police have said.
The unnamed disabled woman had asked to use a toilet at a nearby asylum center after sharing a taxi with one of its residents.
After entering the building, the asylum seeker and five other attacked the woman. She was helpless to do anything to resist and could only repeat the word no.
But after she was invited inside, the woman, in her 30s, was attacked by the man and six of his fellow migrants.
A furious group of more than 100 Swedes have since attacked the center in Visby, pelting it with rocks.
The victim’s lawyer Staffan Fredriksson told local newspaper Aftonbladlet: “She followed him in and had no fears that something would happen.
“Then the man took advantage of the situation. The abuse started in the toilet.
He added: “She is completely broken down.”
Five men, all aged in their 20s, have since been arrested by Swedish police following the incident on October 2.
What, if anything will the Swedish government do to protect its citizens? Sweden has taken in more refugees than any other country and has had several such incidents over the past year. The problem continues to grow as the refugee population grows.
