Women and girls have made great strides throughout the past century. Yet many difficult and critical issues continue
to create barriers to full equality. As we begin this new millennium: 70% of the world's 1.3 billion absolute poor are women;
2/3 of the illiterate adults in the world are women;2/3 of the children not in school are girls; 60 million women who would
be alive today are "missing" because of violence associated with gender discrimination; women comprise 48% of the workforce,
yet less than 5% hold senior management positions and only 10% hold seats in the world's parliaments; every month of every
year, over 40,000 women in developing nations die from pregnancy related causes.
