Until We Value Girls the Same as Boys, Violence Against Women Will Continue in High Rates Around the World


Este artículo se centra en entender que hasta que se valore a la mujer igual que al hombre no se logrará acabar con la violencia de género, pues esta se escalará cada vez en mayor medida.

The truth is, women are not as valued or respected as men in American culture, nor are our opinions, and this cultural norm directly contributes to our high rates and acceptance of violence against women. This connection became clear to me during a U.N.-organized conference in Istanbul on ending violence against women, held in early December and attended by representatives from 70 countries.

Then women’s time and work is valued less than men’s, and that starts at a young age, too. Research shows that girls are paid less than boys for their housework and chores. In adulthood, overall on average, women make 79 cents for every dollar a man makes, with women of color making even less. Women face a pay gap in nearly every occupation and it’s worse for mothers.
