Women's No So Rights

International women’s day took place a few weeks ago, and our social media was flooded with posts honoring women. Though women’s rights have come a long way over the years, there is still much growth needed in order for us to be treated as equals.

Pay gaps -

We live in the 21st century and gender pay gaps still exist. Females earn 94 cents to every dollar earned by their male counterparts, when wages were adjusted to different individual choices made by male and female workers in college major, occupation, working hours, and maternal leave. The remaining 6% of the gap has been speculated to originate from deficiency in salary negotiating skills and sexual discrimination.

Common people as well as famous artists such as Jennifer Lawrence have risen the topic of pay gaps. Jennifer said that her male co-stars are paid more despite her major role in the film and bankable status as a Hollywood A-lister and Oscar winner. 

Sexual harassment-

Some 52 percent of women said they'd experienced bullying and harassment at work over the previous three years. According to a British online survey of 25,000 people carried out by workplace gender campaign Opportunity Now and global professional services.

Women are not safe in this cruel and brutal world. The news about Kesha (American singer, songwriter) being drugged and sexual harassed by producer Lukasz Sebastian Gottwald, better-known as Dr. Luke , has taken all the women in world a back.

Child marriage–

Every year about 15 Million girls are married as children, denied their right to education, health and opportunity. They are robbed of their childhood. More than 700 million women alive today were married before their 18th birthday. That is the equivalent of 10% of the world’s population. Some child brides are as young as eight or nine. In many countries, child marriage is prohibited, but existing laws are often not enforced or provide exceptions for parental consent or traditional and customary laws.
