This is a picture from a photoessay about Pakistani women being attacked by having acid thrown in their face. Apparently, it is an unfortunately common form of terrror and subjugation against women in Pakistan and other Islamic countries.
Ironic as this week saw Iran, having lost it's bid for a seat on the Human Rights Council, managed instead to get onto the ‘Commission on the Status of Women’, dedicated ‘exclusively to promote gender equality and advancement of women’. I'll refrain from posting the well-know stoning picture.

I'm actually at a loss for words.
