The Trung Sisters c 39 AD
Starting in 111 BCE the Chinese sought to gain control over the Vietnamese. For years the Chinese attempted to inflict their culture and laws on the people of Vietnam. This included a patriarchal system which stood in stark contrast to the more equal treatment of the sexes in Vietnam. 
In 39 AD, Trung Trac’s husband was executed by the Chinese government. Trung Trac then decided to seek justice. She and her sister, Trung Nhi, gathered an army of 80,000 people to drive the Chinese from their land.
The Trung sisters were said to have charged into battle atop two elephants, swords drawn, leading armies. 
In 40 AD Trung Trac was made queen and Trung Nhi was made her royal adviser. 
In 42 AD China came back to recapture the region. The Trung sisters and all the people of their country resisted. One notable resistor was a woman named Phung Thi Chinh. She led one of the armies while pregnant. She gave birth at the front, hoisted the baby on her back to continue fighting. 
Unfortunately for the Vietnamese, the Trung sisters were defeated. The Chinese clamped down on the Vietnamese hard. The Trung sisters and their loyal friend Phung Thi Chinh followed the tradition of defeated leaders, and threw themselves into a river to drown. 
The Trung sisters continued to inspire Vietnamese people despite centuries of foreinge rule. They were admired even through the Vietnam war.

“All the male heroes bowed their heads in submission; 
Only the two sisters proudly stood up to avenge the country.” 
 - 15th century poem

A MAN HAS ALREADY BEEN PUT IN JAIL FOR HAVING NATIVE WOMEN IN HIS BASEMENT! PLEASE, BE CAREFUL IF THERE ARE ANY NATIVE WOMEN FROM THERE!! Don’t walk alone! Always have someone with you!

PLEASE!! THIS IS HAPPENING AND IT IS SO SO SCARY!

And Harper refuses to investigate the disappearance of more than 600 women.

Well, I hope he’s satisfied now.  Maybe some of these women could have been saved if he’d done his job as the UN repeatedly implored him to.

Stephen Harper isn’t going to do anything, least of all listen to anyone from the UN. The man is an amoral jerk. Hopefully the senate scandals, the election fraud scandals and a few other things will unseat him and we’ll get someone with a heart and brain in at Sussex Drive.

UK police: Three women held in London for 30 years as slaves
Three women have been freed after spending 30 years held captive in a south London home, police announced Thursday, including one woman believed to have spent her entire life as a virtual slave.
London’s Metropolitan Police announced the rescues after two people — a man and a woman, both 67 — were arrested early Thursday as part of an investigation into slavery and domestic servitude.
The investigation was launched after one of the captive women contacted a charity, which then went to the police. Those freed “some weeks ago” are a 69-year-old Malaysian woman, a 57-year-old Irish woman and a 30-year-old British woman.
The incident highlights the still-prevalent issue of slavery across the world, with one recent report by the Walk Free Foundationfinding as many as 29.6 million people currently live in captivity. Countries such as India, Pakistan and China lead the fray in terms of absolute numbers of modern-day slaves, but Mauritania and Haiti struggle with the highest number of slaves relative to their populations.

There is nothing virtual about it, a woman abducted, abused and raped in captivity was a slave.
