A Norwegian woman has been pardoned and allowed to exit the country. Her crime? She was raped.
Yes, the 24 year old interior designer was raped by a co-worker but when she reported the crime to police, she was arrested for "having sex outside the marriage". She was detained and sentenced to 16 months but she was able to get a call home and her parents alerted the embassy. Since the publicity was not going to look good for the Emirate, and because it was Ramadan, she was pardoned.
This, folks, is a simple example of how Islam treats women.
