Activists seek Indonesia virginity test ban

Practice seen as an intrusion on the private lives of female police recruits who have to undergo virginity tests.

    Human Rights Watch has condemmned a long-standing practice in Indonesia where female police recruits are forced to undergo virginity tests before they're accepted into the force.

    The organisation says the tests are traumatic and demeaning and it's demanding that they stop.
