WINTER, 2010: On the Issues publishes an article by GJC founder and President Janet Benshoof, titled "Justice for Aung San Suu Kyi: End Male Power Structures."
This article discusses the unfair imprisonment of Aung San Suu Kyi, but also the steps that need to be taken to right the injustice to her, Burma and the global community. These steps do not end with freeing her and giving her a place as an elected official; they also need to include gender equality in power structures. As the article explains, justice is a right and all women should be given access to it.
Check out a press release of GJC commending U.S. Ambassador Verveer for calling for proescution of military crimes in Burma in order for to uphold human rights on International Human Rights Day.
