Statistics Since 1995 Show Where Women Are Now
Since The 1995 Fourth World Conference On Women in Beijing, the Clinton Foundation headed by Hilary Clinton, No Ceilings: The Full Participation Report, a reportive and comprehensive look at the progress women have made in these past two decades. What has been found?
Some good news: The amount of women dying during childbirth today is substantially lower than what it was 20 years ago, and all but 9 countries in the world offer paid maternity leave.
Some not-so-good news: A quarter of women in the world are married before the age of 18, and that percentage is also the amount of women in parliament.
Disappointing news: One third of women are sexually assaulted within their lifetime.
The fact of the matter is that women around the world are still not being treated equally.
