Its toll on women's health surpasses that of traffic accidents and malaria combined.

- Women's social and economic inclusion is the right of every woman to have the option of being able to exercise her equal right to work, to pursue justice in the legal system, to vote, and to have equal health, education, social and public services as men under the full protection of the law. Whether or not she chooses to wield her rights, is a woman's perogative. But communities and governments must ensure the inclusion of women's equal rights in the laws of her country. Without standing up for the rights of the women in our lives, we cannot reduce inequality or reduce poverty in our countries. Tell us your thoughts. 6 hours ago
