Making gender parity a reality

“Gender parity” is defined in various ways – it is the inclusion of women in decision-making, it is equal access to education, it is ensuring women have economic opportunities. But however it is defined, true gender parity is still an aspiration all across the globe.

To celebrate this International Women’s Day, we asked staff from our projects to answer one question: “If we could do only three things to promote gender parity they would be…” Every day until March 8th we are sharing videos of their answers. Their views range from arguing that women should be able to express a wide range of emotions at work and recommending greater investment in research on cervical cancer, to saying that we need to improve formal education for girls and buy gender-neutral toys for our children.
