Women are worth something in this world, they should not be treated the way they are in certain countries. American women should be very appreciative of the freedom they have because in different countries, it’s a whole different story. We appreciate women like Malala Yousafzai, who stand up for the rights she wants to receive instead of being walked all over on by the taliban and men around them. Women in America proved they were strong by helping tremendously during the civil war. They proved a point that Men could not do it all without the help of a woman somehow, someway.

Women should have many more rights than they have now in other countries , their worths are equal to that of men.
