All around the world, International Women’s Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality.
There is still a long way to go. There are even countries where the rights for women regress.
The only country where women are not allowed to drive and until now, had no rights to vote
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
54 % of women with children don’t work due to unaffordable daycare facilities.
every 20 minutes a woman is raped and sexual abused
After the law women have the same rights than men, but still earn less money
and still are minority in high level positions.
AFRICA AND ARAB COUNTRIES
In some of those countries they still practice female genetal mutilation
In Egypt for example, a man would not marry an uncircumcised woman, because it makes her smart and calm
It has been estimated by UNICEF that 8000 or more girls per day are being forced to undertake FGM
200 million girls have been killed in china due to the one child policy
The list is never ending………..and still a long way to go before women are equal to men
In the name of religion, politic, society , fanatic , women are still maltreated all over the world
Without women , would be no men in this world !!
So every woman that has the chance to live free should help a woman in the world, that is in need.
Lets think about and act
Happy Women’s SunDay
