When Noor was murdered, victim blamers couldn’t talk about it without mentioning her relationship with the perpetrator & that she was present in his house when it happened. Now that another woman was murdered in her house with her own husband, they’re all silent #JusticeForSarah

How long before we get any sort of justice for any woman who has been killed at the hands of rage and privilege. Another hashtag. Another long wait for justice. Justice delayed is justice denied. #JusticeForSarah pic.twitter.com/HZrb26yomx
