The Women of the World

by Jude & Dharmesh on 21st July, 2011 at 8:13 AM CEST

Trust.org recently reported about the so called “5 most dangerous places for women” based from six key risks: Sexual violence, non-sexual violence, cultural and religious beliefs, discrimination and lack of access to resources and human trafficking, and as you can see, all of the risks are part of the giving in for the self interests of some people.

Here are some of the compiled heart shaking facts regarding this issue:

- About nine in 10 Afghan women are illiterate.
- In Somalia, where maternal mortality remains extraordinarily high, fewer than 10 percent of women give birth in a standard health facility.
- Some 100 million people in India, mostly girls and women, fall victim to trafficking. Female infanticide and “feticide” (referring to sex-selective abortion) are also widespread.
- One study estimated that 420,000 rapes occur over the course of a year in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
- Women in Pakistan earn about 80 percent less than men, and 90 percent of them experience domestic violence in their lifetimes.

Each country gives us different experiences in terms with how we deal with each other but contrary to that, those six key risks can already suffice the things needed in order to assess the countries based on what some of the people do. But primarily, we can really see from a bigger picture  that these kind of things are slowly rising because of gender inequality. UNICEF describes gender as the socially-constructed roles, rights and responsibilities that communities and societies consider appropriate for men and women. With that, we tend to assume about the shared duties of men and women with respect to the cultures that each country has. 

According to Amartya Sen (an Indian philosopher and economist /Nobel Prize awardee), there are 7 types of inequality:

(1) Mortality inequality
(2) Natality inequality 
(3) Basic facility inequality 
(4) Special opportunity inequality
(5) Professional inequality
(6) Ownership Inquality
(7) Household inequality

Those seven types usually revolve around the perceptions and what people usually send out to everyone in their society. These give rise to the thoughts about being in a male-dominated society, women being deprived from basic education and land on a good job with a good salary and many more things.

And before we end this article, let us all together watch this video from GirlEffect.org and let us reflect on how can a good life affect the lives of our women today and for the generations to come:

And not only that! The same organization and movement published this report about the problems of women and why we should pay attention to this pressing experiences for all of us: THE GIRL EFFECT DATA

Let’s create a sound discussion here. Let’s try to be open and be more aware about the current happenings around us, especially when it comes to women.

"The woman came out of a man’s rib. Not from his feet to be walked on. Not from his head to be superior, but from the side to be equal. Under the arm to be protected, and next to the heart to be loved."

I was actually moved while we write this article. I can't stand a chance to read more details that are happening to the women of today. I was crying when making this. I believe you know the reason why.

I was actually thinking, will still be part of our lives by 2030? I am hoping not. And the best way to prevent that is to do something today.

Love the women around you. Each of us do not really deserve to be treated like we don't exist. Spread love, care and respect, because it is through that where we can experience happiness. :)

I don;t know what happened by i don't see the complete version of the article. I guess it has been edited too. Let me add the lacking things here:

Now to aid us in our discussions, allow me to open these topics for our Hot topic for this week:

1. Do we really need to pin point 5 countries and term it as the “most dangerous countries for women”? Basically, violence against women are almost everywhere. After having a quick chat with my friend, we discussed things about prostitution are still very much rampant in some countries for example, and you still can’t be a president here and there if you’re a woman.

2. Personally speaking, would you agree with what the survey showed to us?
3. Do you think that this problem will still exist in 2030?
4. After hearing many stories regarding this, to what extent do you think that your life will change in a good way?

One of the major challenges facing the world on the path to holistic social development. In India alone there were 32000 murders, 19,000 rapes, 7500 dowry deaths and 36500 molestation cases. The atrocities meted out to women is really heart wrenching and deserves severe thoughts by a male dominated society and authority to counter and improve the plight of women as a whole.

When the world start looking to women not as a property owned by males and fashion designers but as a human being who plays a primary role in making from this world a better place, things would change to the better definetely.
