At first glance, the sentence smashed out to this woman seems harsh... until you read what she had done - and for how long she had been getting away with it. This case shows the female of the species can seriously be more dangerous than the male. We have had similar cases - and stories in the media - in recent years, but they're rarely taken seriously.
So... do you think the sentence is too harsh? Or is this level of abuse much more widespread than we have been led to think? Should there be a male equivalent of #METOO?
