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.

    As a human being, one must know about human rights! There are so many kinds of human rights, of course we are familiar with copy right and voting right. Anyway, we must speak and do do what is right, at least to be morally right, with special respect to human rights.

    In our life process, there are rights and wrongs, and some people prefer to call them ‘do and dont’. I’m sure most people are practising the rights and avoiding the wrongs because they respect human rights.

    Well, it is rather sad to learn that there are people who don’t respect human rights, (esp. infringing women rights) and violate the law.

    I feel that our government should look seriously into the following aspects concerning our law on human rights: formulation,implementation and enforcement, of course not neglecting all steps to educate all the citizens at all levels.
