"Women are half the world's population, yet they do two-thirds of the world's work, earn one-tenth of the world's income, and own less than one per cent of the world's property." (Source: World Bank) Let's change that!

Keeping women uneducated and in low paying jobs or no paying jobs is a good way to keep control over them.

This is a disgrace and about time it changed.

without women, nobody exists..... short and sweet, what's not to understand???? so, someone without respect for women, is just plain IGNORANT (wanted to say rather inappropriate words here instead...)

....personally, I've always thought that if more woman ran the world and owned the property/money we would be more likely to see peace and a healthier earth since they are also better at acting in cooperation and with the future in mind.....

This is so entrenched. Many years ago my wife was employed in a division of a multi national company, Her wage was very high for the time. One day she was called in to the office of the recently appointed branch manager who explained that he had been informed her job was actually in a MALE designated area and she was being paid a male's wage.
He replied to the head office that she was doing a better job than any male so he was happy to pay her the wage, and so it remained until she resigned.

That's why Because I'm A Girl is on my monthly charity list. Cherchez la femme and vive la difference. I will support any program that educates and micro finances women. Women are the ones who start businesses and who initiate changes. It is also a fact that unwanted pregnancies decline where women are educated. The nice side affect is that it gets the boys interested in being educated too. After all what women wants a dummy for a husband? Brings back memories of the Levis Red Tag jeans in Central America. Hey chica; look over here! I got the Red Tag jeans and the latest sneakers. Let's hope education takes off like that. Education provides status and income for a life time.

Many women still work hard for a lower wage and then somehow keep trying to take care of their family...
