The world has been fighting for gender equality for decades, but progress has been slow. On June 30, the Generation Equality Forum will be an opportunity to bridge the gap between ambition and action – at a time when the pandemic has highlighted why action is needed now more than ever.
Women have been disproportionately affected by the pandemic. Nearly every facet of their lives has come under pressure, from employment to education to health. The Generation Equality Forum is our opportunity to match the urgency of this moment and deliver for women and girls.
By focusing on putting women at the center of the economic recovery, we can ensure that we rebuild our global economy in an equitable way. Investing in women reaps outsized returns for us all. We now have a chance to re-ignite a movement and deliver real change, because equality can’t wait.
We can build a more equal future for women and girls
