YouGov research from 24 countries reveals where the genders are considered most and least equal, the connection to wealth and where Britain falls behind the developed world
The facts on gender inequality from around the world are stark. Women earn 33% less than men and are concentrated in jobs with poor working conditions; 700 million women are victims of physical and/or sexual violence each year, often in close relationships; men own and manage just under 70% of all businesses and women sit on only 19% of board seats globally; and two thirds of the 774 million illiterate adults worldwide are female.
Statement by NCSE Executive Director, Dawn Hawkins
“Amnesty International must stay true to its mission to “prevent and end grave abuse of human rights and demand justice for those who have been violated” by not passing a policy in favor of legalizing the prostitution of men and women,” says Dawn Hawkins, Executive Director of NCSE.
