Women in Cuba are being badly beaten, mutilated, threatened with rape and extra-judicially executed by a government that some claim is pro-women. How can this be going on?
Today, International Women's Day is a chance to speak truth to power and in the same manner that a candle can illuminate a dark room. Hopefully, people of good will can bring light to this sad reality.
