The United Nations is defending the rights of MEN only


Human Rights should be not only about inclusion, but about proper inclusion.

We really cannot believe our eyes: The own Declaration of Human Rights brings he and his instead of they


Just to mention one article:


“Article 29.

 (1) Everyone has duties to the community in which alone the free and full development of his personality is possible.
 (2) In the exercise of his rights and freedoms, everyone shall be subject only to such limitations as are determined by law solely for the purpose of securing due recognition and respect for the rights and freedoms of others and of meeting the just requirements of morality, public order and the general welfare in a democratic society.
(3) These rights and freedoms may in no case be exercised contrary to the purposes and principles of the United Nations.”


Why do we think that we need to write nothing else here?


Our name is Marcia, M A R C I A, and everyone on earth who hears or reads it seems to understand immediately that WE ARE A WOMAN.
