Statistics for Women

Statistics
These unfortunate statistics are a mere glimpse of the hardships and atrocities women face every day. We may not be able to change and influence them all but we must begin somewhere. Information and inspiration are two empowering elements that WOVEN offers in that process.
In the face of these devastating statistics, WOVEN is here to help restore value and respect to women of the world…locally and globally.

United States

  • Every three minutes a woman is raped.
  • 400,000 teenage girls will become mothers and raise their babies without the help of the men who fathered them.
  • Approximately one in every three girls is sexually abused before she grows into maturity.

Worldwide

  • Half of all women worldwide have been victims of domestic violence.
  • 70% of the world’s illiterate are female.
  • 450 million women are physically impaired due to childhood malnutrition. In many cultures, girls and their mothers eat only after the men and boys are fed.
  • Every day 6,000 girls are genitally mutilated.
  • Every six hours one woman in India is killed or commits suicide because her marriage dowry i considered insufficient.
  • Approximately 2.5 million females a year are forced or tricked into joining the slavery and prostitution industry in various countries. Many of these girls are as young as five.
  • At least 100 million little girls are missing in today’s generation. In India and China abortions are routine when it is leanred the mother is carrying a girl.

“In the near future, I see every little girl growing up knowing that she is valued, knowing that she is made in the image of God, knowing that she can fulfill all the potential He has put within her.”
Loren Cunningham, Author of Why Not Women and Founder of YWAM.
