Shocking attitude to women.  Empty Shocking attitude to women.

The BBC website contains this shocking report:

"Members of Sri Lanka's women's cricket team were forced to perform sexual favours to keep their places in the team, the sports ministry has said.

The ministry said evidence of sexual harassment was uncovered in an investigation begun last year.

It was launched following reports a player had been dropped for refusing to have sex with cricketing officials.

Disciplinary procedures would now be initiated, the ministry said, without naming the individuals involved.

"It is a shameful incident," Sri Lankan Children's Minister Rosy Senanayake told the AFP news agency.

It is not clear what action will be taken against the alleged offenders."

If this is true it indicates an outrageous attitude to women.  furious furious

Sadly, its well known women are treated as second-class citizens (and often little more than sex objects) in that part of the well as many parts of the Middle East. Just look what happened in India with that girl who was gang-raped and hung from a tree.

Outrageous and unacceptable though it is, there isn't much drive by the powers that be to change things.

I suppose its at least some sign of progress they actually have a womens' team...
