Women have for many years remained down-trodden in all aspects of life, yet are naturally of equal capacity as men. The culture of many countries oppresses women to an extent that they are disdainfully looked at and to some cultures taken as sexual slaves.
It is high time that the world changed positively in womens’ favour. World ‘ruling’ organisations should reward nations which promote women’s rights and condemn and punish those that oppress them.
This should be practical.
