some (late) quotes for international women's day:

"Women work two-thirds of the world's working hours, and produce half the worlds food, yet earn only 10% of the world's income, and own less than 1% of the world's property."

"An incident of domestic violence takes place in the UK every 6 to 20 seconds, and every week 2 women are killed in domestic violence situations"

"Between 600,000 and 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders every year. Around 80% of all victims of trafficing are women"

From the Ladyfest Leeds news : Come if you're likely to be in the UK, it'll be ace. 10-15 April.
