When there is gender equality in a society, everyone benefits: women, men, girls and boys. We encourage you to get involved and actively promote and support gender equality and women rights.
How can you do it?
- Speak up when you see injustice and inequalities.
- Support and empower women and girls around you
- Make sure that gender equality is an important principle in your organization: there is equal pay for the same work, equal treatment, equal advancement opportunities, etc. for men and women.
