She wrote: “We want respect for women’s rights? To empower girls? Prevent rape? keep our girls safe? change the mindset? And yet we still endorse dancing girls and disguise it as culture.

It’s sleazy men watching half naked girls dance for them. Call it what it is!,”.

Singapore women are safe to walk home alone even at 4am? Why can’t we have the same sense of security here?! Are we living in a civilised society or a jungle? Scream all you want abt #PublicHangingOfRapists - nothing will happen till the mindset changes ! #motorwayincident

Social media has been trending since yesterday that rapists must be publicly hanged as it is the only way left to control happening of such heinous incidents.
