A Message From GLOBAL CITIZEN:
Women lost out on over $800 billion USD when the pandemic crashed the global economy. Disproportionate job losses that hit women hardest show how fragile gains for gender equality have been over recent decades. We have to demand better.
In just a few weeks, the world’s most powerful decision makers are meeting in Paris at the Generation Equality Forum. It’s a huge opportunity for countries to reimagine a post-pandemic world that puts women’s health, wealth and rights at the center of our global economic and social recovery.
It’s not easy to influence global policy, but there’s nothing an army of Global Citizens can’t accomplish. Submit a quick video message to make sure your voice is heard — the more of us who take action, the more powerful our call for equality will be.
We want to hear from you! What in your own life has made you want a more equal future? What needs to change in your community to achieve gender equality? Share your experience and your vision for the future — your voice — with us.
Let’s #ActForEqual to create a future where women have a fair shot at prosperity. Submit your video now and we’ll share select messages with key decision makers.
