Why Our Work Matters : The Status of the World's Women
We know that while many women and girls across the globe are achieving unparalleled successes, too many others are disproportionately impacted by challenges such as poverty and violence. Our work enables women to leverage their power to promote equity for women everywhere.
“Women-led solutions” are ideas and programs developed by women who are closest to their communities’ needs. We believe women offer a critical perspective on the world’s greatest social and economic challenges, and that their voices and solutions must be brought to the forefront for those issues to be tackled in any lasting way. Their vital perspective is informed by their life experiences as daughters, mothers, workers, community leaders and entrepreneurs.
