March 1, 2022 – March 31, 2022 CST
Gender Equality Month is observed in March. Gender Equality Month is a global celebration organized by the Womensphere Foundation and New Champions 5050, the global initiative for gender equality and empowering women and girls of the Young Global Leaders Community and Foundation Communities of the World Economic Forum.
The Womensphere Festivals bring together inspiring world-changing leaders, innovators, scientists, artists, entrepreneurs, educators, creators, restaurateurs, and all who are inspired to join forces in celebrating women, elevating humanity, and creating more equitable, more sustainable societies and institutions
Today, 740 million women make their living in the informal economy with limited access to social protection, public services and infrastructure that could increase their productivity and income security. One in three women are likely to face violence in their lifetimes, yet public services, urban planning and transport systems are rarely planned with women’s safety and mobility in mind, reports UN Women.
