LET'S GO OUT ON A LIMB...:

A global wake-up call about abuse of women (Bill Williams, October 22, 2009, Boston Globe)

In their urgent new book, the husband and wife team of Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn argue passionately that the oppression of women and girls worldwide is “one of the paramount human rights problems of this century.’’

Serious abuses include female genital mutilation, honor killings, sexual slavery, and mass rape, but this book is far more than a catalog of horrors. The authors include numerous steps that can be taken to reduce the awful suffering.


...and assume that turning a blind eye to dictatorships and Islamicists doesn't advance the rights of women.
