Do we really know our rights?

An email was received this evening and it’s actually passing the message to women.

An incident was happened that a young girl was raped by a man posing as a plain clothes officer. Because of she and her male friend didn’t have a driving license to show, her male friend was sent off and the girl was asked to accompany him to the police station, took her instead to an isolated area and …

Knowledge is always power and it’s good for us to know our rights.

I totally don’t realize that a woman has the right to refuse to go to the police station between 6pm to 6am, even if an arrest warrant has been issued against. A woman can be arrested between 6pm to 6am ONLY if she is arrested by a woman officer and taken to an all women police station. And if she is arrested by a male officer, it has to be proven that a woman officer was on duty at the time of arrest.

We really need to learn more about law and our rights. After all, it’s a way to protect ourselves.

Hoping that this post of mine will help you  to better know our rights and so we can have the high chances to protect ourselves.
