When I was young my dad would say
Come on son let's go out and play

No matter how hard I try
No matter how many tears I cry
No matter how many years go by
I still can't say goodbye

(Geneva, Switzerland, 7 October 2004) Despite huge strides in recent decades towards full equality for women, it is still true that most governments and much of the global infrastructure are run by men. Assessing this global environment, women see the world as less secure and less prosperous than do men. They also see little cause for optimism about the future.

Women are more pessimistic than men about the current state of security and prosperity in the world. More than 43,000 citizens in 50+ countries across the globe were interviewed in the survey. This means the views of almost 1.2 billion citizens (more than 575 million women and 540 million men) are represented.
