Women make up 49.6% of the world—but how do the women of the world really live? (“World Population” 1). My name is Natalie Bright and, over a series of pieces, I will be discussing the injustices, the complications, and the realities of women all over the world.

Although I recognize that no one person has the answers to solve the unspoken dilemmas of women, I believe that facilitating the conversation takes us one step closer to a better world. Elizabeth Caty Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Maya Angelou, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Malala Yousafzai, and Gloria Steinem are just a few women in history who decided that we have waited on the sidelines for far too long. These women have inspired thousands, including myself, to educate themselves on the conversations that have otherwise been deemed taboo. As a young woman myself, I have seen first-hand how ignoring the realities of women has stigmatized topics that should be normalized. 

In this series, I will dive into the psychological effects of growing up as a woman, the struggles of women in poverty, injustice in the workplace, and much more.
