Indonesian Women: ‘Don’t Tell Us How To Dress, Tell Them Not To Rape’

After a politician in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, said women should dress more modestly to avoid rape, women dressed in miniskirts took to the streets and protested for more protection for women and better aid for sexual assault victims. The women carried signs that said: “Don’t tell us how to dress, tell them not to rape,” and “My body is not porn, instead it’s your dirty mind.” Indonesia’s National Commission for Women’s Affairs said there have been more than 100,000 cases this year in Indonesia of violence directed at women.
