Wrong Hole

There are some places in the world where forcible rape is a daily threat to women. In socially conservative societies, it's not unusual to blame the victim; they didn't resist enough, or they dressed or acted provocatively. But people, men and women alike, are starting to fight back. There's the "Rape Axe", offered by a company in Zanzibar. It's designed so women can have an uncomfortable reminder of their vulnerability while ensuring retaliation against a rapist if the crime does occur. A pregnant rape victim in Turkey shot and decapitated her attacker, then left his severed head in the square of her local village, Yalvac. When police arrested her near to the severed head she said, "That is the head of one who toyed with my honor."

Nevin Yildirim, right, beheaded Nurettin Gider, left, in retaliation for rape.

If the community is tired enough they may decide to send a message.
