Women’s Day 2016 Wishes, Quotes, and Messages for Facebook, WhatsApp: Where do women stand today
International Womenâ€™s Day is here. The day is celebrated with fanfare across the globe. It is an altogether different matter that in many parts of the world, despite all the celebrations, it doesnâ€™t help women in improving their lot.
Crimes against women are on the rise across the globe. Despite tall promises from nations and organizations, women continue to be the softest targets of criminals. They are beaten, sexually exploited and denied their rights at different points of their life time.
A United Nations report while talking about the crimes against the women says that around 35 per cent of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner at some point in their lives.
If you are shocked by the report, there is more to come. Another UN report says that some national studies show that up to 70 per cent of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime.
If that is not enough the UN report suggest that women are not given justice despite mounting crimes against them. It says, â€œIn the majority of countries with available data, less than 40 per cent of the women who experience violence seek help of any sort. Among women who do, most look to family and friends and very few look to formal institutions and mechanisms, such as police and health services. Less than 10 per cent of those women seeking help for experience of violence sought help by appealing to the policeâ€.
