Ravens must do right by women [Letter]

All eyes are now on the Ravens to right the wrong done by the NFL with its ridiculous slap on the wrist "punishment" of Ray Rice ("NFL vice president Adolph Birch says Ray Rice's discipline was 'appropriate,'" July 28).

I am outraged. I am a lifelong football fan, and I raised boys who played football. I attend football games, buy football jerseys and spend an unbelievable amount of money on football. I am a woman, and I matter to the NFL.

The Ravens should do the right thing and make a statement to all the men and little boys who idolize their players: You don't hit women.

Jean M. Martin, Baltimore
