Let's Make #March4Women
Because the world is better when she leads too
COVID-19 is exposing and worsening existing inequalities, reversing many of the hard-won gains for women—and for equality—worldwide.
Women are on the front lines of this crisis — as health care workers, community leaders, caregivers — mobilizing the individuals, communities and support needed to build a more equal, more resilient world.
At the same time, women are often excluded from decision-making, their needs and rights ignored.
When women lead, change ripples on through communities and generations.
We're calling on governments, aid agencies, and local authorities to ensure that women and girls are not only seen and heard within the humanitarian system, but able to play meaningful roles in shaping humanitarian policies and programs.
We cannot overcome the challenges facing humanity with half of the world's population left on the sidelines.
