In Defense of Maria Jose Carrascosa: Rights Are No Rights Unless Protected and Defended

In Defense of Maria Jose Carrascosa: Rights Are No Rights Unless Protected and Defended | Expat Spouses & Expat Families | Scoop.it
Why is the growing illegal incarceration of women for discriminatory reasons not accorded the same consideration as the illegal incarceration of men for discriminatory reasons by the international human rights community?
Global Expats's insight:

I first became aware of Maria Jose Carrascosa's illegal detention by the State of New Jersey in 2008, and have closely followed the horrific travesty of justice and mockery of the democratic process by New Jersey for the past 8 years. Unfortunately, the illegal detention and incarceration of victims of domestic abuse (in psychiatric facilities and penal institutions), is a growing phenomenon, as it is increasingly being used by abusers as a weapon when victims attempt to flee and escape the abuse - as has been the case with Ms. Carrascosa.

The violations of Rights by the State of New Jersey and American government, in this case, as with others like it, are appalling, inadmissible, and inexcusable - as is the silence, and inaction, of the Spanish government.

It is incomprehensible to me that the international legal community has not yet taken a very, very strenuous stand and action in this case -- as well as how it pertains to a growing trend in family courts, and courts in general.

Trailing spouse – or career chameleon? – My Telegraph

The internet is awash with blogs and websites dedicated to the concept of the “trailing spouse” – the person, usually, but not always, a woman, who effectively puts her career on hold and moves to a foreign country for the sake of her spouse’s job.

"DCFS Director Richard Calica said some "clues" were overlooked, but he said there was no evidence of "gross malfeasance." ...."My office is as guilty of that as any large bureaucratic agency." State statistics illustrate what is at stake and the urgency to find solutions. More children are dying of abuse and neglect in Illinois than in the past 30 years, the statistics show. In the fiscal year that ended July 1, at least 111 children died from those causes, the most since an annual tally was started in 1981"
