A woman’s world?

Across the globe, women do 66% of the world’s work and produce 50% of its food, yet earn only 10% its income and own 1% of its property. Such figures show just how far we still have to go in the struggle to achieve the genuine equality and empowerment of women worldwide, an objective set down in the third Millennium Development Goal.

Listen to Martina Liebsch, Caritas Internationalis policy director, interviewed by Vatican Radio for International Women’s Day 2011.
