The article is directed at Emma Watson and other feminists, but it is an important read for just about anybody. The statistics are especially enlightening.

Feel free to share related articles, facts or statistics. Or simply show your support for disabled women.

Great links. It rather reminds me of a program I watched yesterday called "the ugliest women in the world"
It told of her struggle to overcome her disabilities, that horrific title and become an inspirational speaker.
I will try to find a link about her (I can`t remember her name)
