Womens Rights Basics



  1. There are six million more women than men in the world.
  2. Women make up 66% of the world’s illiterate adults.
  3. Women consist of 83% of single parent families. The number of families nurtured by women alone doubled from 1970 to 1995 from 5.6 million to 12.2 million.
  4. Women account for 55% of all college students, but even when women have equal years of education it does not translate into economic opportunities or political power.
  5. Two-thirds of the world’s children who receive less than four years of education are girls. Girls represent nearly 60% of the children not in school.
  6. Parents in countries such as China and India sometimes use sex determination tests to find out if their fetus is a girl. Of 8,000 fetuses aborted at a Bombay clinic in India, 7,999 were female.
  7. Rape is consciously used as a tool of genocide and weapon of war. Tens of thousands of women and girls have been subjected to rape and other sexual violence.
  8. About 75% of the refugees and internally displaced in the world are women who have lost their families and their homes.
