  2. "This is the freedom fight of the children of globalisation, who have come through a world recession to find that the promises of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, declared in the austere 1940s, have yet to be made real for millions of girls even in the more affluent world of 2014." I feel like Gordon Brown is ignoring the fact that affluence in the 2014 is reliant on children, girls, and the less visible and wealthy in the developing world being exploited. Our affluence, and their marginalisation and inability to access “universal human rights” are two sides of the same coin.
