Life as a woman

1. Women in full-time jobs earn 17% less than British men.
2. Women in part-time jobs earn 42% less than British men.
3. 67%
of all illiterate adults are women.
4. 1,440
women die each day during childbirth. That's 1 per min.
5. 12 is the number of world leaders who are women. (out of 191 members of the United Nations)
6. Men directed 9 out of every 10 films made in 2004.

This is taken from the Independant Online, statistics polled in conjuction with International Women's Day. I don't know what they're thinking, but this is a depressing way of celebrating it.
But hey, maybe women are doing better than before, no? Maybe it used to be 100% illiteracy for adult women.
Maybe there were no women lawyer at all before this.
At least one woman got to direct a film in 2004.
Who am I kidding? This is just out right sad ok? This just proves that all the feminist bullshit, only apply in developed country.
Woman's right, girl power. Yea, tell that to the women in Ethiopia who have no choice but to wait for their crap husband to come home and bring food for the family.
Go tell them ' You should stand up for yourself, even though it means getting your head cracked open by bomerang axes.'
Next time, if any girl try to outsmart you by arguing some female rights bullshit, just read aloud the statistics above.
Life is just so shitty.
