Women’s economic empowerment
UN Women’s Knowledge Gateway for Women’s Economic Empowerment will launch in September 2013. It is an online platform for women’s economic empowerment.
The article goes on to quote the United Nations;
Women bear a disproportionate burden of the world’s poverty. They are often paid less than men for their work and employed in insecure, unsafe and low-wage jobs. According to UN Women, they receive just 10% of the world’s income yet do 66% of the work.
Interesting to note the economic data released from the United States this week; following the 2007 depression the employment rate for women is now above that of 2007 but more than 2 million American men who had a job prior to the downturn remain unemployed. So women have insecure positions? Really.
Is there a country in the world that has a higher employment casualty rate of women than men. Please tell me if there is, maybe New Zealand men would like to live there.
Women do 66% of the work? Yes for the last century men have been sitting on their bums watching women build the cities of the world, the roads, the railroads, the energy plants and infrastructure that we see around the planet. Yeah right.
Where do people get this dribble from? Some women obviously have too much spare time on their hands.
