* Women represent 70% of those living on less than $2 a day.
* Women suffer inequitably from the chronic effects of poor nutrition, insufficient healthcare and limited educational opportunity.
* Women do 66% of the world’s work and receive only 10% of the pay.
* Women spend 90% of their income on their families, while men typically spend only 35%.
* Women who contribute to family finances have greater decision-making power, resulting in better nutrition, health and education for their children. When family needs are met, women are more likely to invest in their communities.
