Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States, said at a press conference held in Cedar Falls, Iowa, ""Today I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault, don't let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be believed and we're with you."

Hillary Clinton is going to win the presidential election in November further added "There is a big divide between survivors who do not want to seek the criminal justice system for different reasons and those who want to but are not sure that it would be responsive."

It is said that the raped women from developing countries are dependent on help for their living. How much income are these women working towards? How much money would they need per month to give up this system of living? Do we think the world (the governments) is doing enough to combat this problem? Or do we think it is down to the individual to be more responsible? We have some questions.

What is the current situation globally? What is being done in our society? Is it true there is a difference in providing treatment and counseling on raped victims? Worldwide, there are no precise estimates, of the number of women raped. Worldwide, the social values towards raped women are been discriminated against and still there are currently more legal provisions that strictly limiting their rights.

Worldwide, rape is one of the major women's issues. Along with the problem of women also have to face the problem of rehabilitating the women who were raped. Hillary Clinton becoming the next president of the United States also said "We have to do an increased prevention effort. This has to start much earlier. We are in a real difficult environment with cultural pressures that are on young people, women and men to do more to combat."

I support Hillary Clinton because one of the potential answers would be to promote women's advocacy/lobbying and massive campaigns at local level like she said. It is true, in certain countries a lot of girls/women do not attend school or drop out of school to share family responsibilities at an young age. Every day, worldwide, there is a tremendous increase in rape and HIV infection and teenage pregnancy rates. We must think it maybe time now to start conservative approach to women's right and sex education.

With over fifty percent of poor women being of child-bearing age, so we must think that it may be a good approach to protect them. We must think this attempt towards controlling the victims among the younger generation is the best approach. In many countries we need to describe the social responses of fear, denial, and discrimination that accompany this problem.

What steps do we think should be taken to combat this problem? This is a good news that the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), was introduced in the U.S.Senate for authorization. Violence Against Women Act, 2005, includes the Sexual Assault Services Act (SASA) which would provide funding for direct services for sexual assault victims, including 24-hour emergency and support services.

In fact, globally, society's outlook towards raped women is not good. I also fully support that Hillary Clinton has women's issues on her agenda. Hillary Clinton also said that the battle for gender equality and preventing violence against women needs to be a priority for both women and men. Worldwide, women are suffering.

Women are being raped. Hillary Clinton also ensuring the security and advancement of women worldwide. Yes, women equality is a political commitment. Yes, Hillary Clinton will win the presidency in 2016. Congratulations to her.
