Iraq, 2015: a runaway slave who was not afraid to return
Taken into slavery for rape and other abuse, a woman who chose to hide her name from glory managed to escape from ISIL captivity in Iraq and return with arms to shoot the leader of the militants, who kept her in slavery, generously sharing a slave with her “subordinates “. A leader named Abu Anas, a former Russian citizen, was widely known in Iraq for his atrocities. Abduction of women for torture and rape is a common practice of ISIS. According to the ideas of these Muslim radicals, the death of a woman’s hand closes the road to heaven, so the fugitive decided not to entrust her revenge to anyone. However, according to other sources, Abu Anas was killed by the Americans, and the story of the avenger is just a folk legend.
In fact, the plot of this legend almost repeats the story of the Celtic Queen Boudica of the times of the conquest of Britain by Ancient Rome. The Roman conquerors publicly whipped her, and then raped her and her two daughters. Just because they could: it was indicated by the king of one of the Celtic tribes who accepted the Roman power as the heir of his lands, and the Romans decided that a woman should “show her place.”
Their action gave Boudicca the opportunity to raise a rebellion not only for his tribe, but also for several neighboring ones – this was how the Celts were outraged. As a result, the Ninth Spanish Legion was completely destroyed, and the Celts killed 80,000 Romans, that is, the entire colony on the site of present London.
India, 2004: Women v. Akku Yadava
A gangster named Akku Yadav, for several years, instead of killing, robbing and organizing violent group rapes of girls and women with his accomplices, copying pornographic scenes. He was overshadowed by the police, and as a result, he was not only “elusive”, but also knew by name all those who dared to try to write statements to him.
Finally, the inhabitants of the area where he was operating, were able to agree. They broke into Yadav’s house, beat him and took him to the police, where they were threatened with police reprisals if they did not arrest the gangster. When it came to court, there was a rumor that patrons promised Yadav that he would live in prison like a king, eat well and call prostitutes. During the meeting, two hundred women who had suffered from Yadav broke into the room and killed him, tearing him literally apart. They were not prosecuted.
Byzantium, VI century: revenge on the system
Theodore was prostituted in his early youth. She was not just a prostitute, but a participant in public porn shows, during which she had to copulate with a large number of men at the same time. She became pregnant more than once, but caused miscarriages in herself, either under pressure from prostitutes. She, however, managed to get a more or less decent education, attending meetings of the Monophysites, where many difficult things were discussed, and learn the craft (spinning).
After he bought Theodora, took her to Egypt with him, and then left her lover, she managed to return to Constantinople and start a new life. She later became the wife of the warlord Justinian. When Justinian received the imperial title, Theodora became his co-ruler and commanded to banish all brothel owners from Byzantium, believing that in this way she would stop the prostitution of other girls and women. John Malala tells the following about this act:
“At the same time, the pious Theodora, after other good works, did the following. The so-called keepers of hangouts were snooping around, looking out for poor people who had daughters, and, giving them promises and a few nomisses, they took those [girls] allegedly to be brought up. [They themselves] put them out publicly, taking advantage of their misfortune and receiving low benefits from the [sale] of their bodies. And forced them to expose themselves.
