Though women’s status across the world has improved over the last few decades, they’re still largely second-class citizens in comparison to men: they make less money, have more difficulty accessing education and affordable healthcare and face much more violence than their male counterparts.

 

To emphasize the extent of global gender inequality, UN Women–a branch of the U.N. that focuses on women’s issues–has created a powerful advertising campaign that uses data collected from Google on the most popular search terms. As it turns out, the most popular Google queries are indicative of entrenched sexist attitudes that still persist today. If the success and prosperity of all mankind is to be attained, the status of women must continue to improve until complete equality of rights and opportunities is attained.
