How many times have people made you feel like if you are crazy just because you do not want to do the same things that any women is supposedly destined to do? To a lot of women around the world this is the day after day. Unfortunately, we still living in a society which claims that all of us are equal but which does not treat all the human beings with the same equality. Today, it stills existing a lot of inequality and not only about extreme working conditions or slavery, medical attention, ethnicity, religion… Because one of the most simply barriers that we, as humans, have not could conquer it is finish with the sexual discrimination.

In some countries you, for the fact of have being born a girl, have not right even to decide about your life or about yourself.
