from girl rising …to consider on international women’s day (and every day thereafter)
wow… what… the… fuck…I feel a bit ashamed
60 million girls being sexually assaulted on their way to school, yearly? That’s just absurd. It would imply that probably separately, 600 million girls over 10 years(20% of the worlds female population) has been not only sexually assaulted over a 10 year period, but specifically, /while they were on their way to school/. And that’s an absurd statement to make.
The other 3 statistics? I don’t doubt them. Entirely believable.
But that makes the point even further that you don’t need to fudge or exaggerate the numbers to get your point across.
Cite your sources, and don’t say bullshit that’s entirely inaccurate.
Gonna adopt one of these girls when I get my money..even if it’s one less girl.
