The wallchart

 

All human beings should be born free and equal in dignity and rights. But your rights depend very much on where you emerge. Children in Malaysia are likely to be better nourished than those in neighbouring Indonesia. And if you are Libyan you may well be eating far too much. Swedish women are more strongly represented in parliament than Australian women, while Indian women do a much higher proportion of the housework than do those in China. This New Internationalist wallchart draws together international statistics on the status of women, nutrition, natural products, domestic animals and religion. They are taken from the Peters Atlas of the World, published by Longman. Some of the contrasts arise out of climate or culture. Others show plain injustice.
