About Charlotte Bunch:
Charlotte Bunch is an American activist, author and organizer in women's and human rights movements.
What is being called the UN 'gender architecture' is more like a shack. Women need a bigger global house if equality is ever to become a reality.
Women have a lot to say about how to advance women's rights, and governments need to learn from that, listen to the movement and respond.
As a human rights issue, the effort to end violence against women becomes a government's obligation, not just a good idea.
There is no private domain of a person's life that is not political, and there is no political issue that is not ultimately personal.
Our very strength as lesbians lies in the fact that we are outside of patriarchy; our existence challenges its life.
America is like an unfaithful love who promises us more than we got.
People learn to lead because they care about something.
I'd make a comment at a meeting and nobody would even acknowledge me. Then some man would say the same thing and they'd all nod.
Sexual, racial, gender violence and other forms of discrimination and violence in a culture cannot be eliminated without changing culture.
Feminism is an entire world view or gestalt, not just a laundry list of women's issues.
We need women leaders. But we need them to have a vision for something.
