An Injury to One is an Injury to All


  • The majority of people worldwide who live in absolute poverty (that is, living on less than one dollar a day) are women.
  • Women do 75% of the world’s work, including unpaid, yet own only 10% of the world wealth.
  • Out of over 180 countries, only 11 are currently led by women.
  • 1 in 4 women will experience domestic violence at some point in their lives.

The scary thing is, that things like this are so common, such brutalities so everyday, that I feel one has become desensitised... we need higher and higher levels of violence in order to shock us into action and outrage... and that is so sad.
