Advocate Karuna Nundy said it is time to lead now and stop the culture of complicity with the system of patriarchy. It is time to reject the system of thought that privileges men. In the current world, Ms. Nundy argued, "my rights and your rights are tied in together". Its important to struggle for our rights, because rights are never handed to the oppressed on a platter.
