Generally, an ideal of uniformity in treatment or status by those in a position to affect either. Acknowledgment of the right to equality often must be coerced from the advantaged by the disadvantaged. Equality of opportunity was the founding creed of U.S. .
Women's wages are lower, women are less represented in Parliament and there are more unemployed women than men. The most painful section of the report deals with violence against women, revealing that in 2001, 28 women were murdered--13 of them by their partners.
Positive news that become apparent from the report was that despite discrimination, women still managed to improve their status in the army and in the political arena. Upper management on the other hand still favors men, with only 10% of Executive Director positions being held by women.
