In this video, UNICEF asked several women from many different backgrounds the same question: What's it like to be a girl or a woman today? From different countries all over the world, the interviewees are both young and old, but all bring a profound perspective to the burning issue. Some are more optimistic than others, but mostly arrived at a similar conclusion. (While a USA resident happily declares, "I have the same opportunities as a man," a middle-aged woman from the Democratic Republic of Congo observes, "I can say the situation has improved slightly, at least for those in the cities. However it has remained the same for girls in the villages.") One thing's for sure: we're working hard and have been for years, but there's still a very, very long road ahead of us.
