International Women’s Day

LaRae Long Global Citizen, Trendspotting

“On International Women’s Day we should reflect on this data: http://archive.ipu.org/wmn-e/world.htm and that WHO indicate that about 1 in 3 (35%) of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or non-partner sexual violence in their lifetime.

I remember Margret Mead saying, science would improve is observations were done by male and female together, same with hypothesis formation, experiment design, testing, analysis, conclusions, and publishing.
