Women around the globe face some of the greatest challenges to their human rights. In many areas of the world husbands, male family members and social and cultural traditions dictate who a woman can marry, what she can wear and where she can work. Women comprise 70% of the world’s poor, they perform 66% of the worlds work but only earn 10% of income and they own less than 1% of property. Women are particularly vulnerable to physical violence and exploitation including torture, rape, sexual slavery, enforced prostitution and mutilation.
