International Women’s Day 2021
This International Women’s Day, don’t just celebrate – take action.
It’s estimated every 10 seconds, somewhere in the world, a girl has her genitals mutilated.
Over 2.7 billion women worldwide are legally prevented from having the same jobs as men.
And women and children are 14 times more likely to die in a natural disaster.
But the good news is that having more women around the decision-making table,
trained with the skills they need to be leaders and given a seat at the table, benefits entire communities and societies.
UN Women is working to change this, and we can make a difference with your help.
Support a woman or girl to wake up to a brighter future tomorrow, by donating now.
