Newcomb does not believe in putting the blame for violence against women on religion. She thinks that it is essential to put an end to poverty, a lack of education and underdevelopment in order to have a healthy society.

Yes, it is absolutely essential that we speak up for women all over the world. Women's rights are human rights.

To have a healthy society is not to ignore the abuse of women and focus on poverty and lack of education. Although poverty and lack of education is an important issue I feel like protecting human beings should be first on the list. We, in America, have come a long way in women’s rights. In Egypt sex trafficking is a wide spread thing. Also, rape is used in a way to scare women away to not speak up. We experience violent acts when speaking up, but not as often as in Egypt. It is important to help give the women in Egypt a voice. If we really want to speak up against women rights we need to speak up for women rights all over the world, not just in the United States of America.
