Oral Intervention to the UN Commission on Human Rights re: Violence Against Women (Agenda Item 12)

“One night, not long ago, a mother was beating her daughter. She was placed in a sack, hung from the ceiling, and beaten by a broom again and again. The daughter was made to kneel on painful rocks or dry mung beans, arms stretched out, both hands holding glasses of water, and told to hold that position for hours unless she wanted to be beaten again.
