Women create life but they are misunderstood

Today the world is celebrating the International Women’s Day, but is it sufficient to celebrate such a day despite the huge disparities around them? If half of the women population in the country were inactive or exploited then how is your labour force considered as human resources? Let’s have a look a reality around women:

Rapists are free in the Universities

More than half of the rapes on a college campus take place by serial rapists, because outside of the university system, if they rape somebody, they’ll be prosecuted, but when they get on a university campus, they can rape with impunity. They’re not prosecuted. Those are the kinds of things that go on in our society. – Jimmy Carter, Former US President on TED Talk

Hidden crime against women

The 600,000 to 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year, of which 80% are female and half are children.[+]

The International Labor Organization estimates that women and girls represent the largest share of forced labor victims with 11.4 million trafficked victims (55%) compared to 9.5 million (45%) men. [+]

Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind illegal drugs and arms trafficking). It reportedly generates a profit of $32 billion every year. Of that number, $15.5 billion is made in industrialized countries. [+] Various sources on INCOMESCO

Successful story

When her sister reached puberty, she was sent to a traditional “initiation camp” that teaches girls “how to sexually please a man.” She got pregnant there — at age 11. Banda, however, refused to go. Instead, she organised others and asked her community’s leader to issue a bylaw that no girl should be forced to marry before turning 18. – Memory Banda on Ted talk

Why woman president?

How Monica Lewinsky console herself if she listen or watch the news of Hillary Clinton on the way to be a first woman president of the US! Whereas Hillary Clinton is claiming that her candidacy is especially for women and sisterhood. – INCOMESCO

“At the age of 22, I fell in love with my boss,” but “At the age of 24, I learned the devastating consequences. “  She asked – “Who didn’t make a mistake at 22? … I was branded as a tramp, tart, slut, whore, bimbo and, of course, ‘that woman.’ I was known by many, but actually known by few.   – Monica Lewinsky

Discriminatory thinking of human

The important parts of the human body we know relatively little about – historically, there has been a lack of scientific understanding. Some of the human organs which are very important and sensitive but they are a shame to care, share and discuss. Due to what millions of people are suffering even in the educated and affluent society. The Ignorance of human in understanding the role and challenge of the organs is the shame, not the organ itself.

Tribhuvan Wagle, in his novel ABIR

Gender inequality and food insecurity

“The emerging evidence strongly indicates that women and girls are experiencing the impacts the most acutely: at least 60 per cent of malnourished people are women and girls…These deep gender inequalities in food security exist even though women constitute the majority of food producers in the world and are often managing their families’ nutritional needs. Poor women are often doing this despite gendered norms and constraints that restrict their access to productive resources, and global and national forces that force down the market value of their own produce while raising prices of food they need to purchase. In addition, women’s own nutritional needs – and often those of their daughters – are being neglected because they are considered of lower status and less of a priority than men and boys in many cultures.” – IDS, Gender and Food Security
