Address Gender Inequality on International Women’s Day

  • Week of March 8, 2020

The theme of International Women’s Day 2020 is #EachforEqual. But with gender inequity in everything from business to education to healthcare to politics, we are far from that promise. Today, all-of-us must go beyond a perfunctory “Happy International Women’s Day” message and take real action. 

Here’s how:

1 Melinda Gates has a simple but impactful call to action on Women’s Day: “Start a conversation about gender equality. Even better, talk about it with someone you’ve never discussed it with before.” Read her Op-Ed in the New York Times here and get the un-comfy conversations going!

3 Not into any of those, we’ve got your back. Move on to this week’s Action #4 for another impactful idea!
