Got Gender Equality?
Here's How You Can Help
Inspired by strong, confident women in your community? Why not introduce them to your daughters? Seeing how powerful women can be given the opportunity is essential for future women to create a strong, feminist presence in their world. Use #WomenSupportingWomen to spread ideas about involving primary female figures in the lives of younger generations.
Community-based women’s organizations can be effective in giving women a voice in shaping policies that affect women and children. They are sometimes overlooked by national governments and international agencies, and should be partners in all forms of development activities.
Help out with a local Girl Scout Troop! Organize an All-Girls Book club and read inspiring feminist stories! Promote equal education and business opportunities for the local girls!
