Women’s rights in Rwanda have progressed hugely since the genocide 20 years ago. Sixty-four percent of parliamentarians are women — the highest proportion of any parliament in the world — and as many girls as boys receive primary and secondary education. But despite encouraging progress in education and falling maternal mortality and birth rates, in rural areas the poorest citizens tend to be women, often genocide survivors."We are not blind to the progress that has been made, but the women we work with are excessively poor," says a women’s rights advocate.

The odds of being attacked by a shark in the US are 1 in 11,500,000, but no one gets mad at people who want to avoid the ocean.

Strange old world we live in.
