Women’s Issues – Domestic and International

Discussion

The world’s issues are many, including violence, war, and discrimination. Disproportionately, women suffer.  For example, violence against women is India’s fastest growing crime.  India’s 40 million widows  especially suffer, experiencing both physical and emotional violence, and a mortality rate 85% higher than married women. Often cast out because they are considered unlucky, they are referred to as “it,” rather than “she,”  or worse. They are both expected to live in lifelong mourning and spiritual chastity while at the same time are at a much greater risk for rape. The world needs more fair-minded men and empowered female advocates on behalf of women’s issues.
