"The global statistics on the abuse of girls are numbing. It appears that more girls and women are now missing from the planet, precisely because they are female, than men were killed on the battlefield in all the wars of the 20th century."
Women in Ghana are subjected to severe abuse and violation of their constitutional rights. In rural areas women remain subject to burdensome labor conditions and traditional male dominance. Rape and domestic violence remains a significant problem in Ghana. Female Genital Mutilation is also a serious problem. Each woman averagely gives birth to 3,95 children (2000 est).
Women in Guinea are objects to polygynous marriages. Divorce laws favour men. Legal evidence given by women carries less weight than that given by men. Every woman in Guinea averagely gives birth to 5,46 children. Up to 90% of Guinean women undergo Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
