Genital mutilation because women do not need to feel pleasure during sex.

Human Trafficking because women are just there for men’s pleasure and to work.
Forced labor because that’s what women are supoose to do while the men lead them.
Forced capture because women don’t need to do anythigjn but have babies, take care of the babies, and take care of their man.
Mysogyny because women are not as good as men
Force wage discrimination because a woman does not worth as much as men.

These are the pervasive beliefs around the world towards the female gender.
The same gender that populates more of the world by 2%.
The same gender that creates life.
The same gender that has been creating what every one of us craves since the beginning of time (no matter what else she does) – A Home.
The same gender that gets recognized on poster boards, lips, and screams every time a camera is at a sports event or in a crowd.
The same gender that has fought for equality for their entire existence.
The same gender that has uplifted every single one of us.
Why is this acceptable? It’s not!
