State of inertia

What is the world waiting for?

"The statistics are staggering and mind-boggling, but one is amazed at the worlds’ state of inertia which has aided the continuation of these practices. On every other issue, the world has reacted with swift and decisive measures to either modify behavior, save the victims or make offences against humanity punishable. On this particular issue and all other injustices against women, there seems to be a collective lack of will to implement the right and adequate measures to ensure women’s safety, sexual dignity, and respect for self-determination."
