For UN Women Executive Director Michelle Bachelet,
I thought woman was born for childbirth when I perceive myself I am a woman, then I had my first period at eleven and I also knew some peoples buy and sell many children same age, also knew Japanese man have to do with it. In past days, a Japanese politician sad this “woman is a machine for childbirth” so many people were angry it, but I thought it is truth, because high schoolgirls do not go to the university as high schoolboys about do, and it is still hard getting a job for woman. Sex discrimination is incorrigible, I think this reason that many people think woman was born for childbirth, and I also think so. But I am a human and a woman, I have a right for human being, and every woman also has it. We can study and get our living. I hope for the future it is every country’s sitting member, they are women by half in 2020, and the percentage of girl’s students who advance to higher education is 50% level up in 2015. Japanese men sometime say “woman is strong”. I think it is excuse for justification of sex discrimination. I also every human is strong, as man is strong as woman. I hope the world who can’t live off the backs of women and they were born for live there life.
