- Between Jan-Oct of 2009 there were 417 murders of women.
- Last year they discovered a mass grave of 260 women who had been raped before they were murdered.
- And perhaps most alarmingly, El Salvador is number one in the world for feminicide and the murder rate is 40% higher than the next worst country, Guatemala.
I have suspicion that the way that we treat women and children in our society, nationally and globally, is a determining characteristic of our health. Perhaps women and children are the "parakeets in the coal mine" of global society. Their health and well being will determine our survival. What do you think?
