In honor of International Women's Day, Makers--an organization dedicated to sharing women's stories-- published important facts about gender inequality worldwide. Turning discourse into action, Makers also listed the organizations involved in removing each inequality.
The facts are shocking, with '1 in 5 women on US college campuses have experiences sexual assault', and '4 out of 5 victims of human trafficking are girls', just to name a few. Instead of staying discouraged, we should unite to stop the violent autrocities commited against women and girls, and build upon the efforts already begun by activisits and NGOs worldwide.
Around the world, women continue to fight for equal rights. March 8, International Women’s Day, is a dedicated opportunity to call for greater equality. On MAKERS, we recognize women who better the world, whether they’re providing resources for women in war-torn countries or teaching girls to code. By highlighting their stories, we hope to empower the next generation of women leaders to aim higher, go further. Why? Because we still have a lot of ground the cover. Below, learn statistics that show the incredible inequalities we have to tackle, and discover the organizations that are working to change them. In parentheses, find the statistics source and a link to more information. This International Women’s Day, how will you support women around the world?
