Girls and women have a right to be equal everywhere — in every country and in every aspect of life.
Yet today, girls and women are not equal anywhere. And setbacks for gender equality block global progress.
Gender discrimination is one of the most glaring setbacks. Wherever it exists, though, there are also brave advocates taking action to end inequality.
People and partners around the world are joining the United Nations Foundation and stepping up. And we won’t stop until we achieve equality for all girls and all women, wherever they are.
Let the world know you stand with us, and the champions and changemakers working to ensure full equality for women.
