Ex-Murdoch exec Rebekah Brooks due in court

A former top executive of media baron Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper group is due in court on Wednesday, accused of trying to obstruct a police investigation into phone hacking and bribery.

Rebekah Brooks was charged last month with perverting the course of justice in connection with a police investigation into phone hacking at the tabloid News of the World, which she used to edit.

Her husband Charles and four current or former News International employees also face charges.

They are accused of plotting to remove seven boxes of documents from News International offices and hide computers and documents from police.

    Experts were divided on the situation in the United States.

    Civil rights and domestic violence laws, access to education, workplace opportunities and freedom of movement and speech were positive. But access to contraception and abortion were being curtailed and women suffered disproportionately from a lack of access to affordable healthcare, some experts said.

    "Many of the gains of the last 100 years are under attack and the most overt and vicious attack is on reproductive rights," said Marsha Freeman, director of International Women's Rights Action Watch.

    Ms. Brook has done quite well as to achieving wealth and esteem, from a relatively poor childhood to a top corporate position, she played the game well.
    Feel empathy towards her present plight, no way, something tells me that no matter het present plight, the nature of offence, being female, positions of hrrself and hubby within society, and British Legal system, she will end up maling out quite. well
