Following the unhindered influx of migrants, which was heavily advertised by media and the majority of the political establishment, Sweden has seen an equally unhindered wave of sexual attacks. To add insult to injury, blatantly non-PC stickers advocating violence against women were spotted in the town of Nybro in Sweden's southern province of Småland, the local news outlet 24Nybro reported.
"Women who do not wear the veil are asking to be raped," one of the stickers said in English. Another one had "No democracy. We just want Islam" written over an image of radical Islamists.

Images of the stickers have set the Swedish social media alight with debate. Some blamed the incident on the newly arrived extremists spreading radical messages to recruit possible companion-in-arms, whereas others suspect the stickers to have been pasted by "hate-mongers."
The problem of harassment and sexual violence against women has also been a tender spot for traditionally feminist Sweden. Swedish public baths continue to be afflicted by obnoxious groping incidents, despite efforts from female vigilantes. Most recently, Swedish summer festivals were plagued by a wave of sexual assaults, notwithstanding efforts by the Swedish police, who are considering establishing women-only zones as the only viable solution against violence. Whereas Swedish newspapers are jam-packed with reports of assault and rape, it is considered correct to conceal the identity of the perpetrators, by portraying them simply as Swedes.
