国际女性:令人震惊的差距(Women Worldwide: Shocking Disparities) - 美国马尾妹 - 花旗国的半边天
   

虽然,不仅在美国而是在全球范围内,女性已经取得了巨大的进步,但是女性和男性之间还是存在着令人震惊的差距。最显著的是女性占世界劳动力的66%,但得到的收入却只占10%。此外,女性生产50%的世界粮食,拥有的土地却仅有1%。尽管女性许诺要提升自己并为了家庭而努力工作,但现存的不平等表明女性在争取劳动和报酬对等的路上仍然面临着艰难的斗争。除此之外,女性在世界贫困人口总数中所占比例高达70%。

女性在社区内担任关键的工作,很多人都认为女性是解除经济危机、促进经济发展的关键,在欠发展地区尤为如此。如果女性的经济地位得到提高,那么她们就可以为家庭和社区带来更多的机会。例如,当收入水平较高或拥有较多的土地时,女性的购买力会增强。这样一来,她们很可能会投资当地商店或者进行自主创业,带来更多的就业机会。赋予女性权利也就是赋予社区权利,因为女性会回报社区并学习新技术来帮助周围的人提高生活质量。

Despite all of the advancements women have made, not only in America, but worldwide, there are still several shocking disparities that exist between women and men.  Most notably, women make up 66% of the world’s workforce, yet only take home 10% of the world’s pay.  Furthermore, women produce 50% of the world’s food, yet only own 1% of land.  This inequality demonstrates that women, despite their commitments to furthering themselves and working to provide for their families, still face an uphill battle when it comes to being compensated in alignment with their contributions.  Women also make up 70% of the world’s impoverished people. 

       Women perform critical tasks within the community, and many people believe that women are the key to unlocking and improving economic development, especially less developed areas.  If women can improve their economic standing, they can also improve the opportunities for their families and communities.  For example, if women had higher income levels or owned more land, they would have more buying power, which they would likely invest at local stores or in creating jobs through entrepreneurship.  Empowering women will also empower communities as women give back and learn new skills that will help to improve the quality of life for those around them. 

Discussion Questions

       What is the best way to help women worldwide to get out of poverty and take home more of the pay they deserve?  Why do you think women own so little land compared to the work they perform?

 

问题讨论

帮助世界女性摆脱贫穷,得到更多她们应得报酬的最佳途径是什么?为什么你认为较之付出,女性得到的土地太少?
