Women become spoils of war in Somalia

Imagine a woman being stoned to death for refusing to marry a thug. Women in war-torn countries  become pawns and are used and abused at will by thugs who call themselves soldiers.
More ought to be done by the United Nations and peace-loving, democratic nations to help women in these countries after the war is over.
It is disheartening to read of the lives some women have to leave. They have no rights, they live in poverty and their dignity is wrenched from them like animals.
