Women's Rights 6 pm to 6 am

My sister forwarded this email to me. Maybe you should read and share with all of your friends about this...

Women's Rights 6 pm to 6 am (important for your knowledge)

Dear all,

Women's Rights 6 p.m. to 6 a.m.
I was talking with a lawyer friend of mine.
We were discussing the law and women's rights.
She told me about this incident:

A young girl was raped by a man posing as a plain clothes officer; he
asked her to come to the police station when she and her male friend
didn't have a driver's license to show. He sent the boy off to get his
license and asked the girl to accompany him to the police station.
Took her instead to an isolated area where the horrendous crime was
In fact, the law clearly states that between 6 pm and 6 am, a woman has
the right to REFUSE to go to the Police Station, even if an arrest
warrant has been issued against her...
It is a procedural issue that a woman can be arrested between 6 pm and 6
am, ONLY if she is arrested by a woman officer and taken to an ALL WOMEN
police station.
And if she is arrested by a male officer, it has to be proven that a woman
officer was on duty at the time of arrest.
It is good for us to know our rights. To what extent it comes of use
remains to be seen in any situation. But as they say, knowledge is power.
Just thought I'd share this with you. I did not know this and am sure lot
of us will not know this- please be informed..... And pass on this info
to whom all you know.......
