“Empower Women, Change the World”
The Proposed Global Women’s Empowerment Initiative Includes:
A GAME-CHANGING OPPORTUNITY – INVITE WORLD LEADERS TO KEEP PROMISES TO WOMEN
Our mission is to galvanize a movement to put unprecedented levels of investment in women and girl’s grassroots funds where it can have the most impact. At the G7 Summit in Canada in 2018 world leaders pledged to put women and girls at the center of their International Development Agenda.
In one sweep, this one change in global policy could potentially move BILLIONS into the hands of women in the years to come. Right now, less than 2% of global funding for gender issues goes to local women’s organizations. According to Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation "A study looking at 70 countries …found that women’s grassroots movements were more effective at advancing policy change…–particularly on violence against women–than most other factors. “
WOMEN’S GLOBAL ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT. Equality won’t happen without resources. Equality won’t happen without education. Without health. Without an end to violence. Without capital to help women’s entrepreneurial spirit flourish.
