EUROPE/SPAIN - "There is no justice without equality": the crisis has worsened the poverty of women and girls around the world

Thursday, 31 January 2013

Madrid (Agenzia Fides) - "There is no justice without equality" is the theme of the campaign promoted by the Catholic organization Manos Unidas Spanish that will start on February 5. In some countries, being a woman is risky even before birth, 60% of people suffering from chronic hunger are women and girls, as well as 98% of trafficking victims worldwide. The goal of the campaign is to denounce the many injustices and abuses suffered by women in their journey towards equality, as well as demonstrate how, with commitment and determination, one can overcome the gap between men and women in many societies.
