I hope that some will speak up for third world women.

I hope that on women’s day the emphasis will be on the plight of third world women. Feminists, world leaders, men, everyone must speak out loudly and repeatedly against the following:
1) Female genital mutilation
2) Punishing rape victims
3) Honor killing
4) Strapping bombs to children
5) Sexually enslaving women
6) Murdering homosexuals
7) Child marriage
