As a woman in Australia I have lived a very fortunate life.
I have a home for my family, I have food in my belly, a bed and warm blankets every night and I am fortunate enough to give my own family these privileges each and every day.
Tonight I will tuck my children in and they will dream of school and holidays and toys. They go to sleep soundly, not fearing for their lives and knowing when they wake tomorrow there will be food on their plate and a hug from loving arms.
Not all children get such privileges though.
Somewhere else the world, young girls won’t be tucked in at all. They will find a spot on a hard floor, or cover in a laneway, and they will hope that no one touches them through the night.
