Re: Women's Movement Issues

Tom, It adds that 70% of the world's poor are women and they own just 1% of the world's titled land. Shocking! Exhibiting violence in wrong context and place is violence itself. I find this old fashioned activist style provocative and aggressive. "Women's Movement Issues" is the place to bring about...

Female Genital Mutilation is practices on children from 4 to 14 and some even do this horrific practice on infants. The practice is d...

They changed their name and are now saying they have reforms within the care of children out of fear of prosecution.
