    This is tough to read. #2 is especially terrible and surprising. What are your thoughts on the current trajectory of these issues?

      It is mind-blowing to see the number of issues that share female neglect as a core conflict. The toughest part is that most of the oppression stems from ethnic and cultural-based patterns. In order to make a change, we need to educate both men and women and attack the general issue that is ignorance. Recently, I came across an article that listed Israel as the country that boasted second largest percent of educated women, ironically it also has some of the highest numbers in female unemployment. Lack of academia is micro to the lack of general knowledge and respect that is given to females, which I think is reflected in all of the issues listed.
