Think We're Equals?

"Attention Women and Men of the world:
You are amazing!
You build.
You dream.
You create.
Together you accomplish great things. 
But,
You have a problem.
You are failing 1/2 your population.

Today women are less likely to:
survive their first year of life;
have clean water;
own land;
control their own money.

Today women are more likely to:
be illiterate;
suffer violence at home;
do unpaid work;
eat less in times of crisis.

Today women are more likely to die because they are women.

Equal?

Not yet.

What can you do?

Speak.
Demand.
Ask.
Debate.
Build.
Change.
Vote.
Challenge.
Compete.
Decide.
Work.
Heal.
Yell.
Write.
Listen.
Farm.
Fight."

Come weigh in on this conversation HERE. What else would you add to the list? 

Create? Empower? Support? Give? Share?

Visit The World Bank, "working for a world free of poverty" HERE and take their Equality poll. We did and the results were interesting.
