WORDS...

Not too long ago in our history women were not allowed to be given the credit for their intellectual contributions, so they married and the husband ‘inherited’ their work and thus took credit.    This is why many wrote decided to publish under a pseudonym.  The Great women of olde are still to this day not given their due credit for their important contributions.

"Almost 90% of people are biased against women, according to a new index that highlights the “shocking” extent of the global backlash towards gender equality.

"Despite progress in closing the equality gap, 91% of men and 86% of women hold at least one bias against women in relation to politics, economics, education, violence or reproductive rights."

“Index”.  Hmmm....

It would be useful to see EXACTLY  ‘how’  they came up with these figures.
