A global target to achieve gender equality by 2030 was set by the United Nation’s but no country is on pace to achieve this goal. This means women and girls are continuing to face violence, discrimination and challenges due to unequal gender norms, attitudes and practices. Plan International works with women and girls in all their diversity as leaders of change to tackle the root causes of gender inequality and reshape unequal power relations in their communities and beyond.
