Equality is the birthright of every girl and woman on earth, but it isn’t her reality.

Despite some progress, there is no place, no part of life where a girl or woman is equal to a boy or man.

To overcome the obstacles that hold back half of humanity, the world needs to move faster. Equality is how we will make progress on some of the world’s biggest challenges: ending poverty and hunger, improving health and education, tackling the climate crisis, and growing economies.

#EqualEverywhere brings together the United Nations Foundation and partners committed to achieving the urgent systemic change that’s needed at all levels, in all countries. Our aim is to build, nurture, and mobilize communities of support for girls and women across and between countries, sectors and issues.

Through this campaign, you will get to know champions for girls and women who are all fighting to make the birthright of equality for girls and women a reality.

Join the UN Foundation, our partners, and people across the globe as we commit to #EqualEverywhere. Together we can drive greater and faster action on gender equality in every place and every part of life.
