100 Women: Do we need to talk about sexism?

Although the World Economic Forum points each year to a narrowing global gender gap, sexual discrimination is still sanctioned by law in some countries.

And in many developed countries, different aspects of sexual violence against women are still not prohibited by legislation.

In this video, presented by the BBC's Esra Dogramaci, we have illustrated how women fight back against everyday sexism from New York to Egypt.
