Fighting for women's rights!!!!
Would we need an International Day to stop Violence Against Women if there wasn't any violence? Obviously not. According to Amnesty International, 1 in 3 women will be raped, abused or beaten in her lifetime. This is such a high figure as almost half of all women in the world could suffer this kind of violence. The day against gender violence is celebrated on 25th November, since in 1990 in Latin America three sisters were murdered by order of the dictator Leónidas, because they were against his dictatorship. Since then America has celebrated this day and some time later Europe also started to celebrate it. Every day we can see on the news girls who have been mistreated by their boyfriends or even, women who have been murdered by their husbands. Today lots of men treat women as they want. They say to them what they have to do, how they have to dress, who they can talk to or where they can or can't go. This is so terrible! The further we are from these people, the better for all of us. Currently, we carry on fighting for women's rights as, although there is much more equality between men and women, there is still some inequality. For instance, in a same work, men earn more money than women. Moreover, there are certain works that are exclusive for men, which I consider a nonsense.
