The Girl Effect

‘The face of poverty is a woman. Of the 1.4 billion people living on just over $1 a day, 70% are women and girls. Women do 2/3 of the world’s work, but earn only 10% of the world’s income. Women produce over half of the world’s food, but own only 1% of it’s land. Of the almost 900 million adults who can’t read or write, 2/3 are women. Women and girls are the poorest, most excluded group.’

Let’s change the world. Fight for gender equality. Health care, access to clean water, and education are what will save us from ourselves. Educate the women and watch out.
