"The United Nations defines violence against women as 'any act of gender-based violence that results in, or is likely to result in, physical, sexual or mental harm or suffering to women, including threats of such acts, coercion or arbitrary deprivation of liberty, whether occuring in public or private life.'"

Women…

  • Constitute half the world’s population
  • Perform nearly two-thirds of its work hours
  • Receive one-tenth of the world’s income
  • Own less than one-hundredth of the world’s property
