The Clinton Global Initiative has been meeting and we just read this quote. Of course, we have heard those same statistics earlier in the week at the Womensphere Forum.
But no matter how many time we hear them, they resonate and motivate.
"Women perform 66 percent of the world's work, and produce 50 percent of the food, yet earn only 10 percent of the income and own 1 percent of the property," President Bill Clinton said. "Whether the issue is improving education in the developing world, or fighting global climate change, or addressing nearly any other challenge we face, empowering women is a critical part of the equation."
