-- Nasir Khan
There are millions of women in poor countries where they have to struggle hard to survive. They are subjected to domestic violence, sexual abuse, and in some cultures treated more like chattels that can be bought and sold. In many countries, misguided and ignorant people fight against their education and want to keep them in traditional social bondage. Child brides are still common in many countries.
On this day, we should renew our common struggle for the equal human rights of all women everywhere and to end the systemic oppression they are subjected to.
