With heat from the bottom and heat from the top." The protests, the merahcs, the uncompromising potoiisn that women's rights are human rights, full stop. That's the heat from the bottom. That's mclaolm X and the suffragists and gay pride parades. But we also need the heat from the top. And in most parts of the world, that top is still controlled by men.

With heat from the bottom and heat from the top." The protests, the marches, the uncompromising position that women's rights are human rights, full stop. That's the heat from the bottom. That's Malcolm X and the suffragists and gay pride parades. But we also need the heat from the top. And in most parts of the world, that top is still controlled by men.
