An Important Current Issue
Even today, in many parts of the world, women continue to be stoned to death for adultery at the hands of ignorant mobs. In some cases, an accusation of 'adultery' is just an excuse for a man to cast away his 'wife' and acquire another.
A longstanding history of misogyny and injustice permeates many societies and cultures. Rarely are victims of this abuse given fair trials or even an opportunity defend themselves. Only religious education, legal strategies and political pressure can combat this injustice.
