white women make 77¢, black women make 66¢, and hispanic/latina women make 56¢ for every $ a man makes
in 2005 1,181 women were murdered by an intimate partner (that's about 3 women killed a day)
79 million girls who would otherwise be expected to be alive are ‘missing’ from various populations, mostly in Asia, as a result of sex-selective abortions, infanticide or neglect
domestic violence is widespread in most societies and is a frequent cause of suicides among women
2 million girls between the ages of 5 and 15 are introduced into the commercial sex market each year
an estimated 4 million women and girls are bought and sold worldwide each year, either into marriage, prostitution, or slavery
at least 130 million women have undergone female genital mutilation or cutting; another 2 million are at risk each year
My Gift to The World
One of my gifts to the world is defending women's rights. Here are some things I can think of that contribute to women's rights are, equal pay, political rights, and your right to safety. I think that why women don't have equal rights is because most men have more money and power than women because, in history men have set themselves up that way. Another reason I think women don't have equal rights is because women have stopped believing they deserve equal rights. Religion is also a big contribution to why women don't have equal rights. I have cared deeply about this issue for a long time.
Here are some things you can do everyday to help this issue, if you see a girl anywhere being harassed or bullied stand up for them, you can also find some events around Eugene about defending women's rights. An upcoming event you can participate in is One Billion Rising, it's where women all over the world dance for their freedom and some dancing for their lives. One Billion Rising is on February 14th every year. I participated in this event last year and I will be participating again this year. Every year, since I was 4 months old, I have participated in a march called Take Back The Night. Take Back The Night is a march to help stop rape and physical violence against women. Take Back The Night is on April 25th every year.

Women in The Media
eating disorders have the highest mortality rate of any mental illness; for women ages 15 to 24, the mortality rate of anorexia is 12 times higher than any other cause of death
69 % of girls ages 10 to 18 confirm that photographs of models and celebrities in magazines inspired their desired body shape
The Impact of Women's Rights on The World
Women's rights has a huge impact on the world because women make up more than 50% of the world's population. Women due to their sex aren't in many positions to contribute to this society. The actions of one sexist man can affect how female bystanders feel about themselves and feel toward men in general. Women have been taught not to make a fuss about crude treatment and have learned to just put up with it.
This is Eve Ensler, a play writer who has written

, an activist addressing issues of violence against women and girls, and she is the woman who organized One Billion Rising.
