Issues to be addressed on International Women's Day 8th March - your views & suggestions please?
1. Ban child marriage worldwide.
2. Petition Governments in countries that don't allow women to vote, go to school, drive, walk down the street without a man present etc.
3. Crackdown on human trafficking and enslavement.
There are so many aspects to look at.
That's good Elvisa, what about issues with regard to empowerment?
Oh absolutely! Many men across the world have traditional values "Woman belongs in home". It's time to give women the same opportunities. We have to make the future better for our daughters.
Oh that's cool idea Elvisa, thanks. What else then?
Great answer, ElvisaM. I would like to add that it is important for men to realize women's issues affect them. The abuse women suffer could happen to their mothers, sisters, wives and daughters. How would they feel if one of them were kidnapped and forced into prostitution? How would they feel if they were a product of such abuse?
Also, injustice to women bleeds over to men as well. Men are subject to human trafficking, usually for hard dangerous labor such as working in mines. Men are more likely to be sexually assaulted in societies where human rights aren't valued.
In addition, women's health issues need to be taken seriously, so their babies - male as well as female - can be born healthy.
