    Chibok Girls

    I'm posting this here because it so strongly reflects on the horrible damage inflicted by purity culture, wherever in the world it may be. Chibok Girls refers to the 279 high school girls abducted from their Nigerian village by the Islamic extremist group Boko Haram in April 2014. 21 of the girls have been released recently by Boko Haram and reunited with their families, but this is not a story with a totally happy ending for both the girls who have been released and those still held: You can read the full text of this article in the Daily Mail here. There are many pictures of families of the girls and the girls being united with their parents, who looked overjoyed to be reunited with their daughters. Of the original group of abductees, dozens escaped early on. Today's article in my news paper noted that: This information that Chibok village is conservative Christian and that the parents of my of the kidnapped girls are affiliated with The Brethren was new to me. That the girls would be taunted and considered impure from being held by Boko Haram for even a few hours is just horrible; even more horrible is that girls being repatriated may not be able to live in their home village because they are considered tainted, and even more horrible than that, girls who were forced into "marriage" are too ashamed to return home. This is tragedy on top of tragedy on top of tragedy. I'm not able to determine if the village culture is such that it isn't feasible for the girls to continue to live there, if it is The Brethren or who would be so horrible to innocent girls. If anyone has more detailed information on this situation, please post up. Most of the links that I saw were just the original article with slight variations. ETA: I had assumed that Chibok "village" was indeed a small village of maybe several thousand people and possibly it is, but from the Chibok wiki:
