across the globe, we are united in our dedication to human's rights
WHO WE ARE
Human rights are standards that are essential to the full development of individuals and communities. They allow all people to live with dignity, freedom, equality, justice and peace. Gender equality is such a basic human right. Many organizations are working day and night to solve the inequality between men and women.
While most countries recognize that equal rights should exist between men and women, this is often not the case. Many have established regulations intended to fight discrimination and programs granting women access to health, education and economic rights such as land ownership. But these regulations don’t seem to solve the problem. We need compassionate organizations to fix the gap concerning gender equality.
Auntie Is MerkezI Organization is non -governmental group helps to fight and speak on the following.
Promote Human equality and encourage woman to be active and contributing in the society .
Equality (or the lack thereof) is a recurring issue when it comes to women and girls, whether it’s unequal access to schooling for girls in developing countries, or unequal pay for women in the workplace. In a world where 95% of countries are led by a male head of state, it’s clear that we as a global community have a long way to go before women are given a fair shake.
While the other issues outlined below are specific to girls and women, addressing them will positively impact everyone—even my fellow clueless men of the world. Stay tuned to Auntie Is MerkezI promotions all month as we explore the many ways in which a win for girls and women is a win for us all.
— Women Are At Higher Risk of Poverty
We all know poverty is a problem, but did you know it’s especially a problem for women? According to the 2014 census data:
- Women are 60% more likely than men to live in poverty.
- 6 in 10 women lived in poverty in 2014.
- 2 in 3 single mothers lived in poverty in 2014.
- Of the nation’s 4.5 million poor children, more than half live in families headed by women.
Women experience higher rates of poverty because they are more likely to be under-compensated, over-represented in low-wage jobs, and more likely to do unpaid caregiving work. Reducing poverty for women will require us to invest in support systems, employment initiatives, and most importantly, education.
— (Access to Education) Women Who Need Education Can’t Afford It
Female college graduates actually outnumber male college graduates—but don’t let this fool you. Getting a higher education is still a struggle especially for the most vulnerable and at-risk women including single mothers, women in poverty, and survivors of abuse.
- Only 7% of single moms under 30 have finished college, and most cannot afford a degree now because childcare and housing expenses swallow over half their income.
- A woman who hasn’t graduated college typically earns 67% less per year than a woman with a bachelor’s degree and is more likely to live in poverty, suffer health issues, and die early.
Education is proven as the most effective way to empower women for lifelong success. Not only does education open the door to better employment opportunities, it also teaches a woman to make positive choices that will help her—and her children—live longer and healthier.
— Women Are Victims of Domestic Violence
Every case of domestic abuse should be taken seriously and each individual given access to the support they need. All victims should be able to access appropriate support. Whilst both men and women may experience incidents of inter-personal violence and abuse, women are considerably more likely to experience repeated and severe forms of abuse, including sexual violence. They are also more likely to have experienced sustained physical, psychological or emotional abuse, or violence which results in injury or death.
— Female Genital Mutilation
Defined by WHO as including “procedures that intentionally alter or cause injury to the female genital organs for non-medical reasons,” is a complex issue with religious and cultural implications for the groups who practice it. That said, the general consensus in the international community is that FGM imposes real health consequences, violates a child’s rights, and promotes inequality between the sexes.
— Ending Child Marriage Keeps Infants Healthy
Education is a major indicator for the likelihood of a girl to enter a marriage before she turns eighteen. Girls with little to no education are at a much higher risk of becoming child brides than those who have attended through secondary school. For every year a girl is in school past the fifth grade, she delays her marriage a year.
