What’s happening to women’s rights around the world?
The COVID-19 pandemic has set back progress for gender equality and girls’ and women’s rights. The longer the pandemic continues, the longer women may go without access to jobs, food, health care and education, further exposing them to the risks of gender-based violence, health issues and poverty. Yet we know that girls and women can be powerful agents of change in times of crisis, provided that they can exercise their rights.
This International Women’s Day, as we celebrate the strides women have made and continue to push for, we can’t let progress slip away. We must ensure that girls and women can secure the resources and services they need to overcome the impacts of the pandemic and reach their full potential.
Honour the powerful women of yesterday, today and tomorrow with a gift that will support women and girls right now, where and when they need it most.
