World unsafe for women

After more than 2000 years of Christianity it is a saddening that this world is still not safe for women. Amnesty International took advantage of last week’s International Women’s Day 2001 to publicise the plight of a sizable proportion of half the human race in its report, Broken Bodies, Shattered Minds, which exposes the daily torture and ill-treatment of women that occurs worldwide – see our reports on pages 2 and 4, and our editorial on page 8.
