2009 International Women's Day

2009 International Women's Day

When we think of women we immediately think of our loved ones: wife, sister, mother, etc... or if not... we at least think of the most famous kiss in the world!

But never forget that not everything is heavenly when it regards to women around the world... here are some Global Issues ... (more details here)

* Females in developing countries on average carry 20 litres of water per day over 6 km
* Globally women account for the majority of people aged over 60 and over 80
* Pregnant women in Africa are 180 times more likely to die than in Western Europe
* 530,000 women die in pregnancy or childbirth each year
* World population hit 6,872,741,131 on 1 January 2009
* Of 1.2 billion people living in poverty worldwide, 70% are women
* 80% of the world's 27 million refugees are women
* Women own around only 1% of the world's land
* AIDS sees women's life expectancy of 43 in Uganda and Zambia
* 5 people are added to the world's population every 2 seconds
* Women are 2/3 of the 1 billion+ illiterate adults who have no access to basic education


And you? How do you treat women?
