We talk daily about stemming the spate of violence against women. We pay lip service about punishing offenders, but when is justice really served. When a judge sentences a privileged white man to six months in prison for brutally raping a woman what message is that sending to others like him?

The Judge in the Brock Turner case was more concerned about his welfare than that of the woman he raped. He is reported to have said “A prison sentence would have a severe impact on him…I think he will not be a danger to others.”  So you the judge who women are looking to for justice is concerned about the impact prison will have on this convicted rapist. What about the indelible mark this man has left on this woman’s life. What about her physical, emotional and mental scars; her life will never be this same again.

This is a national disgrace. There should be one set of rules for all whether you are white or black or rich or poor. The privileged few should not be allowed to live above the law; there should be justice for all. Once again I have to ask, WHEN WILL WOMEN GET JUSTICE?
