International Women's Day: Moving Women Forward
HEAR OUR STORIES...
In celebration and honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, we are thrilled to bring you stories from local women leaders who are addressing long-standing inequalities in multiple areas of women’s lives, and building a more just and resilient world in the process.
Although progress has been made toward gender equality, much work remains. Globally, women’s participation in the workforce is unequal to men’s; one in three women still experience physical or sexual violence; and twice as many girls as boys will never start school.
Even in our own country, state, and region, women still face persistent barriers to accessing economic security, physical and mental health care, and representation in elected positions that greatly improve their lives and the well-being of their families and communities.
We can all take steps to advance women’s equality. And we know one of the best ways to achieve equality is for all of us to use our platforms for change.
Let’s move #WomenForward. Let’s all #ChooseToChallenge.
Join us on social today. Share how you #ChooseToChallenge. How will you work to advance women’s equality and build a more inclusive world? Tag us on Facebook @CharitableVentures, on Twitter at @CharVentures, and on LinkedIn at @Charitable-Ventures.
