Virginity Testing: What The Fuck?

WOMEN'S LENS - Un coup d'oeil féminin: Stop 'virginity testing' in Egypt!: "The Egyptian military may have just hit a disturbing, new low: at least 18 women who were arrested during a peaceful protest in Tahrir Square on March 9 said they were forced to take 'virginity tests'.

Those women were threatened with charges of prostitution if they 'failed' the tests. One woman, who said she was a virgin but whose test supposedly proved otherwise, was beaten and given electric shocks."


  1. I missed this completely. That's just unbelievable. I'm reminded again how fortunate I am to live in a country where women are usually safe from this level of abuse.

  2. Women's Lens is an interesting spot. It helps if you can read a little french but there is lots in english


Not moderated but I do delete spam and I would rather that people not act like assholes.
