I applaud Nick Cohen and Clive James for voicing their support for human rights for women around the world. Men and organisations of power, need to see that it is in the interest of humanity to prioritise, promote and procure human rights for women. If humanity is going to survive, men and women must start to see that these cultures and religions lack justice for women and children. Improvements in human rights is not achieved by a section of society but it is achieved by masses of people. A 'strong feminist movement' alone is only a start but more components of society need to be activated to achieve progress. How can change be progressed when it is vocal women who are the only voices? How can men, politics, media, and other organisations band together to make progress?
