Liberia: justice to all men?

Elma Shaw blogs about the International Women's Day in Liberia and the motto on the the wall of the Temple of Justice: Perhaps change should begin with modification of this discriminatory and exclusive motto written in large letters on the Temple of Justice. How long will we allow it to remain as it is? Language is powerful. Simply remove the word “men” and everyone will begin to feel the difference as the new motto sinks into the psyche of our society: “Let Justice Be Done To All.”
