woman of the world

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.

SAUDI ARABIA

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.

INDIA

every 20 minutes a woman is raped and sexual abused

EUROPE

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

CHINA

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
