Women and Girls

When women and girls around the world experience life as being just and fair, we will have taken a giant step toward becoming a thriving and sustainable planet.


“Gender equality is more than a goal in itself.
It is a precondition for meeting the challenge
of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development
and building good governance.”
 —Kofi Annan
