CHANNEL 5 - GENDER EQUALITY & WOMEN'S FREEDOM
WELCOME TO PFF CHANNEL 5 
Our focus is to fulfill the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #5 which is to achieve Gender Equality.

FEMALE AND FINALLY FREE

PFF is reaching out to women who have achieved freedom by triumphing over challenging constraints. Some examples might be overcoming the following: an eating disorder, a prison sentence, postpartum depression, being a hostage, suffering spousal abuse, or workplace bullying.

These women have survived, and are now finally free.



Spousal Abuse
Abuse can take many forms. Many may equate physical violence with abuse but, in reality, actions that constitute “abuse” for the purposes of the law are expansive. Abuse can include:
  • Physically hurting or trying to hurt.
  • Sexual assault
  • Emotional, verbal, or psychological distress
  • Making someone fearful for their imminent or future safety
  • Harassing, stalking, or threatening
An Eating Disorder
Adults and adolescents can struggle with anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating and other eating disorders. Often, these conditions are made worse by trauma and stress, substance abuse, personality disorders, anxiety, compulsive disorders, or depression. Fortunately, patients can recover with appropriate therapy.
Poverty
The UN reports that if women had the same access as men to productive assets, agricultural output in 34 developing countries would rise by an estimated 4 %,  reducing  undernourishment by as much as 17%, translating to up to 150 million fewer hungry people.

The UN states, "Gender equality, the empowerment of women and the realization of the human rights of women and girls are key, as we push for the eradication of poverty and hunger, access to energy for all, or sustainable patterns of consumption and production. 
A Prison Sentence
There are some imprisoned women who have had spiritual experiences that were transformative. In most cases, their lives were lives of service to their fellow inmates in the simplest of ways. Despite their physical custody, the minds, hearts and spirits of these individuals soar above and beyond the physical walls of the prisons.
Being Bullied
The definition of bullying is physical or verbal aggression  repeated over a period and, in contrast to meanness, involves an imbalance of power. Contrary to popular belief, bullies who have never been bullied themselves often have rather high self-esteem and to be social climbers. Bystanders of bullying often succumb to peer pressure to support bullying behavior for fear of becoming a victim.

U.N. SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOAL 5 - GENDER EQUALITY
Gender equality is not only a fundamental human right, but a necessary foundation for a peaceful, prosperous and sustainable world. 

There has been progress over the last decades: More girls are going to school, fewer girls are forced into early marriage, more women are serving in parliament and positions of leadership, and laws are being reformed to advance gender equality.

Despite these gains, many challenges remain: discriminatory laws and social norms remain pervasive, women continue to be underrepresented at all levels of political leadership, and 1 in 5 women and girls between the ages of 15 and 49 report experiencing physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner within a 12-month period.
In Southern Asia, a girl’s risk of marrying in childhood has dropped by over 40per cent since 2000.
​​​​​​​

One in five women and girls, including 19 per cent of women and girls aged 15 to 49, have experienced physical and/or sexual violence by an intimate partner within the last 12 months. Yet, 49 countries have no laws that specifically protect women from such violence.

In 18 countries, husbands can legally prevent their wives from working; in 39 countries, daughters and sons do not have equal inheritance rights; and 49 countries lack laws protecting women from domestic violence.
