Indonesia is forcing girls to take "virginity tests" before they can go to high school.

A city on Indonesia's Sumatra Island is about to force female students to pass a virginity test before they can go to high school.

Whether or not girls are virgins has nothing to do with their right to a good education. No male students are forced to undergo this humiliating exercise, one which shames sexually active teens and may expose rape victims to further abuse.

If we don't speak out, this policy will spread in Indonesia and surrounding countries. But Indonesian authorities aren't expecting international scrutiny, which means it's the perfect time to call on Education chief Muhammad Rasyid to stop this anti-woman campaign.

Help Indonesia's girls get the education the deserve — write Rasyid today!

PETITION TO MUHAMMAD RASYID: We urge you to protect the women and girls of Sumatra and end plans to force female students to take "virginity tests" before entering high school.
