The world has been transfixed and horrified by the brutality of a group of extremists toward nearly 300 schoolgirls and unnamed others in northeastern Nigeria. The plight of these girls has rightly captured the global public’s heart and mind. For daring to seek an education, these girls and others have become the face of unspeakable violence at the hands of Boko Haram.
Unfortunately, they are not alone. Women and girls in staggering numbers are beaten, sexually abused, married off as children, mutilated, and killed every day around the world.
