A French man [now here's a case where I'd support the BBC using 'quotes'] has been jailed for 25 years for burning a teenage girl to death in a rubbish depot, in a crime which shocked the nation.
Sohane Benziane, 17, was killed in October 2002 on a rundown housing estate in Vitry-sur-Seine, near Paris. Jamal Derrar, 22, was convicted of torture and barbarity leading to unintentional death.
Outrage over Sohane's death led to a wave of feminist protest in France and the creation of a new campaign group.
The organisation campaigns, in particular, for the rights of women from ethnic and religious minorities such as Sohane, a Muslim of North African origin.
Quelle surprise. Let's look at what the holy book says about women shall we?
