This week I was thinking about what I should write about, so i googled women’s issues around the world. I figured a lot of interesting things would come up, and they sure did. One article really I came across was very interesting. It was titled 25 Facts About Women All Around the World.
I began reading this article and I was appalled by all the different statistics that were shown. One fact that really got my attention was that in Saudi Arabia is a wife does not get her husband coffee then he can divorce her if he chooses. WHAT!! I found myself laughing because it is so sad that women in different societies are portrayed as a maid in a sense. Also, another fact was in Italy it is legal to be a prostitute if your name is Mary. How terribly sad! Did you know that in Japan condoms are sold door to door by women?? Ya me either. I found most of this article to be so sad because in this case women are lessening themselves by going around selling condoms. But then again, I thought to myself maybe they are being forced to by their husband to make money or maybe it is the only job they can get.
I found really only one fact to be very positive. I never knew that the two highest IQ scores ever recorded are held by women. Now that’s impressive! This whole article just showed me that women are a minority in today’s society. I find it to be very upsetting, but maybe someday things will change, one can only hope!
Here is a link to the article that I found.
