Billy Martinez Gender Equality Introduction to the Problem One of the major problems
that contribute to not having
gender equality is education. Politics
Leadership Violence & Marriage

Women are just
used for sex
and to have
multiple babies so
the probability
of having a
boy is higher. Ownership Solutions Throughout the world, many governments restrict women's freedom of press, expression, and assembly. In areas in the world, such as the Middle East and North Africa, women are treated as a minority and not equally. Women are the
minority when it
comes to politics Another issue with violence in marriage, is that the women's family, especially their husband, will physically harm them after they "misbehave".
For example, one women in Afghanistan, Bibi Aisha tried to run away from her abusive family, but was caught.
Her husband chopped off her nose and ears, and left her to bleed to death.
Luckily, U.S. Soldiers found Bibi and were able to save her.
Bibi Aisha was only 16 when this happened.
Countless other young girls are abuse by spouses, because according to laws, husbands may do what they wish with their wives. Women are not allowed
an education because men
are seen as superiors. Girls and women can not get
a quality education in some
countries because women
can not drive, ride bikes, or
be driven by men unless
they are close to them.
Women and girls have
no efficient form of
transportation. Girls are taken out of
school once they reach
puberty. Girls can not
attend the same
school as boys. Girls can not be taught by
a man at a certain age, and
since many females are illiterate,
there is a lack of female
teachers to teach the
new generation of girls. In many countries,
women are not allowed
to participate in any
form of politics. Women are not allowed
to vote in many Middle
Eastern countries because
it is only a man's job In many countries,
women are not
allowed to run
for any form
of leadership. 7. Combat violence against girls and women 1. Strengthen opportunities
for postprimary education
for girls while meeting
commitments to universal
primary education. 2. Guarantee sexual and reproductive health and rights. 3. Invest in infrastructure to reduce women’s and girls’ time burdens (decrease travel time.) 4. Guarantee women’s and girls’ property and inheritance rights. 5. Eliminate gender inequality in employment by decreasing women’s reliance on informal
employment, closing gender gaps in earnings, and reducing occupational segregation. 6. Increase women’s share of seats in national parliaments and local government bodies. In countries where women are treated unequally, it is usually because they are considered "items," not human beings. In some countries, men have multiple wives Women have to do everything their spouses tell them too do. Proportion of seats held by women in national parliaments (%) source: data.worldbank.org If this goal is solved, more MDGs will be solved too. www.bit.ly/ON2uj3 Shortly after 1998 the D.H.S conducted a survey in nine different developing countries; Cambodia, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Haiti, India, Nicaragua, Peru, and Zambia. The surveys collected demographic and health data from women aged 15-49. found that an average of 32.25% of women had been physically abused. source: world.bymap.org Afghanistan 31% of women in the U.S. had also been similarly abused. Abuse: More than one in six women in each country admitted to being shaken, pushed, slapped, or targeted with a thrown object by their husbands. Another one in ten reported being threatened or publicly humiliated by their husbands. In Asia and Africa the most commonly practiced form of customary inheritance is patrilineal (male member only) In patrilineal forms of inheritance, women are basically unpaid labor for their families and are often left impoverished and homeless in cases of widowhood, desertion, singlehood, or divorce. Of the estimated 72 million primary age children who were not in school in 2007, 54% were girls In nine countries (including six in the Pacific Island States) there are no women members of parliament at all Careers In the developing world, still 80% jobs occupied by women are vulnerable and involve own-account and unpaid family work Women tend to have to work more, but women’s nominal wages are roughly 20% lower than men’s Unpaid House workers
1 in every 4
1 in every 200 Women are more likely than men to be own-account workers, domestic workers, factory workers or unpaid workers in family enterprises.
