How terrible is it to be born a girl in the world today? Every girl in this country has to think before saying ‘My country is great’. Now it can not be called a great country for a girl because here they are insecure at most places. There is no such day when newspapers do not print the news of the rape. Governments change, leaders change, but there is not much change in women’s situation.
Over the past several decades, the daily trending headlines were like the kidnapping of nearly 300 schoolgirls in Nigeria to the latest horror stoning of a woman in Pakistan. These types of cruel acts of violence and discrimination against women, do provide us with a plenty of reasons to see the worst aspect of things about women’s equality and safety in today’s world.
Various violent acts that are primarily committed against women are sometimes considered a hate crime that generally targets a specific group with the victim’s gender. Violence against women and girls is of that type where at least one out of every three women around the world is beaten, forcibly raped or conceived, or otherwise abused throughout her lifetime.
