The most common cause of death in women and girls is domestic violence worldwide. 90% of all women, girls and female children worldwide have been raped, abused or sexually harassed. 100% of all women the world, girls and female children experience, that they are second-class citizens, more worth less than men. Half of all girls worldwide are forced to marry under age 18. 75% of all women have experienced domestic and family violence, 90% were also sexually harassed in school, university and profession. 100% are daily confronted with sexism in advertising, the media, school, university and profession. Women receive less pay for equal work. Although women do two thirds of the world's work, they earn so little that 75% of them are poor in old age. Rape, pornography and forced prostitution, femicides in many countries, forced marriages, child marriages, FGM, honor killings, dowry deaths, acid attacks, witch hunts, mass rape, war rape, gang rapes, the withholding of education and school as well as forced veiling, stoning of rape victims, imprisoning and torturing women's show them that they are only objects for the men , especially sexually, but not seen as humans with the same rights around the world. This is a very sad outcome for the 21 Century. Only few women actually dare their opinion about these things to say, and rightly, worldwide costs of fighting for human rights, women's rights, children's rights, many women, girls and female children's life. They are raped in the cruelest way, tortured and slaughtered. I can say for myself that I'm glad to be almost 60 years old, unfortunately the world is not getting better. I hope very much that the younger generations can this stop around the world, here are the young men asked, it is implausible that they feel comfortable in such a world. And there must be worldwide for assault crimes against women, girls and female childs tougher sentences. This is the first step that things getting better.

Because enough is enough. The fact that almost all women have experienced varying degrees of sexism at some point in their lives shows how endemic it is. Women should have the right to be women and not exist solely to be a man's counterpart.
