It’s no news that women around the world are being celebrated this week. If you missed our Women’s day message, check it out here. The theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, as we probably know, is “Women in leadership: Achieving an equal future in a COVID-19 world”. The theme celebrates the tremendous efforts of women and girls around the world in shaping a more equal future and recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
A more equal future
In our world today, there’s the acknowledgment that women bring unique experiences, perspectives, and skills to the table; and make contributions and policies that benefit all. In spite of this, some women across the world are facing systematic barriers and all forms of abuse, and misrepresentation.
We can all choose to challenge and call out gender bias and inequality. We can all choose to seek out and celebrate women’s achievements. Over the years, the world has gotten closer to achieving gender equality. There is a better representation of women. However, there’s more work to be done. Collectively, we can all help create an inclusive world.
So, on today’s Begging Questions, please share your thoughts on how you think men can help promote gender equality.
