In the last twenty years there have been many improvements in women’s lives. For example, life expectancy has increased, the number of girls in school and the number of jobs for women. Many countries have introduced laws to protect women’s rights. However, there are still many injustices. Women are half the world’s population and perform two-thirds of all the work, getting to that one-tenth of global income. Women have only one-hundredth of properties, including land (United Nations, 1979).
