I read The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW), which is an international treaty adopted in 1979 by the United Nations General Assembly, through a microphone in public, but only read the word "women" aloud.

3 September, 1981

There is an increasing number of women who are reluctant to admit that they are feminists. Due to the stereotypes, misunderstandings, and prejudices of feminists given by the public, more and more women are having difficulty expressing their positions. Just looking at the word "women", which is what people call them without understanding the meaning behind it and the things related to it, makes it harder to achieve equal rights. 3 September 1981 is the date of entry into force of the convention.
