Girls and women in the world’s poorest countries are being held back from realising their full potential, because poverty is sexist. They are fighting for an equal chance to learn, equal opportunities to earn money, and equal control over their finances.
If every woman could unlock her own potential to work, earn and invest in the future, the impact would be revolutionary.
Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,
Please invest in girls and women in the world’s poorest countries to unlock their full potential. Commit to a bold initiative at the G7 summit that enables at least 100 million women to learn, work and increase their independence.
For the 39,000 girls who became child brides today. For one billion women without access to a bank account. For every woman paid less than a man for doing the same work.
None of us are equal until all of us are equal. Sign our Poverty is Sexist letter to leaders – be proud of what you stand for.
