{UAH} Kenya rape trial named as world's worst case for women's rights

Kenya rape trial named as world's worst case for women's rights
June 7, 2017 18:59 

LONDON - A Kenyan man's acquittal for having sex with a 13-year-old because she seemed willing was named on Wednesday as the world's worst court decision for women's rights in the past year.

It beat off tough competition from Europe - where an Italian woman did not scream loud enough to prove her rape - and an Asian ruling that restricted birth control to Philippine women. 

The Gender Justice Uncovered Awards recognize court decisions that affect the rights of women and girls around the world, in both good and bad ways.

The Kenyan judge in the most egregious case ruled that if only the age of victims was taken into account, "young girls would freely engage in sex and then opt to report to the police whenever they disagree with their boyfriends."
