Madrid: A Spanish judge created furore when she asked a rape victim if she tried closing her legs.

According to The Clara Campoamor Association, a gender-rights group in Spain, Judge María del Carmen Molina Mansilla engaged in "offensive, degrading and humiliating" questioning of a pregnant woman, who came to a police station in Vitoria last month to report she had been physically and sexually abused, reported The Huffington Post.

 

The judge reportedly asked the woman, “Did you close your legs firmly? Did you close off your female organs?”

A campaign has now been launched in order to have the judge suspended for posing offensive questions.
