    Here is a direct quote which summarizes her point:

    And when we frame all women as being someone’s wife, mother or daughter, what are we teaching young girls?

    We are teaching them that in order to have the law on their side, they need to be loved by men. That they need to make themselves attractive and appealing to men in order to be worthy of protection. That their lives and their bodily integrity are valueless except for how they relate to the men they know.

    She is literally saying that using the "imagine if this was your sister/mother/daughter" arguement dehumanizes women because it turns them into the property of MEN.  

    Which leads to the logical quesion...isn't someone the sister/daughter/mother of other women as well?
