    The defense and promotion of the right of women to be treated as human beings is one of the key focal points about the war on terror. This article (while I don't 100% entirely agree with its conclusions and language) is nevertheless one of the most powerful calls for the realization of this point.

    The numbers and reality of the situation are simply horrifying.

    It seems like between this and things like the death penalty for the Christian convert in Afghanistan there is a need for a universal bill of human rights. Any country that doesn't sign up should no longer receive aid from the US. But most of the people who are against selective abortion and religious persecution are also against the UN. So under whose authority would a universal bill of human rights fall?
