The world's worst punishment for rape?
Liz* was walking home from her grandfather’s funeral when she was ambushed by six men who took turns raping her and then threw her unconscious body down a 6-meter toilet pit. The punishment for the vicious men who did this to her? Mow the lawn then go free after!

Liz’s horror story has sent shockwaves through Kenya and now politicians and the police are under pressure to respond. But women's groups in Kenya say nothing will be done unless the government is put under the global spotlight. They are calling on us urgently to help ensure justice is done and that Liz’s nightmare marks a turning-point in Kenya’s rape epidemic.

Nobody has been brought to justice -- not the rapists, and not the police. Today, we change that. Lets stand with Liz right now, before the rapists and the police escape. Sign the petition to get justice for Liz and make sure no other Kenyan child suffers this violence.

*Liz is a pseudonym given by the news outlet that broke her story and has since been widely used. She is not pictured here.
