The International Finance Corporation with the World Bank estimates that women perform 66 percent of the world’s work, produce 50 percent of its food, but earn just 10 percent of global income. 

Women comprise two-thirds of the world’s illiterate people, and one-third of the world’s girls are married before age eighteen. 

Women own 30 percent of registered businesses worldwide, but only 1 percent of property.

Say what?!
