WOMEN ARE ALSO HUMAN,THEY DESERVE TO BE TREATED EQUALLY LIKE MAN.

* SOME SOBERING FACTS:

– The average Afghan girl will live to only 45 – one year less than an Afghan male. After three decades of war and repression, an overwhelming number of women remain illiterate in Afghanistan. Afghan girls are also discouraged, sometimes fatally, from seeking an education and Afghan rape victims can be forced, by law, to marry their attacker. More than half of all brides are under 16, and one women dies in childbirth every half an hour. A large majority, up to 85 percent, of women in Afghanistan give birth with no medical attention. It is the country with the highest maternal mortality rate in the world.

 -Women account for 39 percent of all adult HIV infections in India. Domestic violence in India is endemic and widespread predominantly against women. Around 70% of women in India are victims of domestic violence, according to Renuka Chowdhury junior minister for women and child development. National Crime Records Bureau reveal that a crime against a women is committed every three minutes, a women is raped every 29 minutes, a dowry death occurs every 77 minutes and one case of cruelty committed by either the husband or relative of the victim occurs every nine minutes. 50 million girls were killed in the past century in the practice of female infanticide or foeticide; around 100 million women and girls are estimated to be victim of human trafficking; 44.5 percent of girls are married before the age of 18.

-The US-led invasion to “liberate” Iraq from the hanged Saddam Hussain, imprisoned women in an inferno of sectarian violence that targets women and girls. The literacy rate, once the highest in the Arab world, is now among the lowest.

-In Kinkala, a town in the Pool Department of Congo – an area surrounding the capital Brazzaville that has only recently emerged from a long-lasting and devastating conflict – an innovative experience is developing: a project of HIV/AIDS prevention run by the youth for the youth.

“In my own group of friends, one of my friends – a girl – has contracted AIDS after being raped by several armed men.”
Dieumerci Mbenza, the youth coordinating the project, pauses for a few seconds, struggling to keep away emotion.
“These terrible acts are still common, in our area – he continues. And it is particularly the girls who are victims of rape. But for HIV/AIDS, both girls and boys are very much in danger, because of lack of information, because of poverty and prostitution, because of the prevalent violence, alcohol and drugs, and a lot of misconceptions…
