2019 will be a big year for women globally. There is a lot to be proud of. Yet, a lot remains to be achieved.
A balanced world is a better world. How can you help forge a more gender-balanced world? Celebrate women’s achievement. Raise awareness against bias. Take action for equality.
Gender equality can be achieved when women unite and use their faculties to focus on common goals: zero tolerance of violence against woman and oppression, pay equality, equal access to opportunities and universal education of girls and boys.
One of the main concerns prevailing in the world and standing in the way of gender-equality – as well as many other social and environmental issues -is corruption. Corrupt political and business practices are largely responsible for the predicament we are in. We need innovative ground swell initiatives that demand and foster transparent and fair decision making. We need to remove those who benefit and participate in corrupt practices. One such initiative is ‘Unbreaking America: A NEW Short Film about Solving the Corruption Crisis created by Represent Us.
We need a strategy to combat corruption for each single country in the world and for the United Nations. It is a big job but possible.
