While the article doesn't get everything right and doesn't necessarily understand the issues on a deeper philosophical level, at least this is a clear indication that there is some understanding that individual rights, especially for half the world's population, are necessary to solve many of the world's problems, most especially poverty.

I also appreciated that there were no pulled punches out of respect for "other cultures and their heritage" - sex trafficking, slavery, physical abuse/murder, and legal inability to own property are declared unequivocally wrong and barbaric.
