06 Mar / Achieving True Gender Equality
March 8, on International Women’s Day, Dianova launches the #YourVoice+ campaign
The UN Women’s Follow-up Report on the Sustainable Development Goals published in 2018 is clear. “All across the world, women are facing social, economic and professional barriers based on gender discrimination. The discrimination starts early. First, from the education that young girls receive, until to the types of work they are relegated. A reality in the center of both private and public sectors. That is to say, women face professional segregation, biases and stereotypes that make gender equality in the workplace challenging”.
Dianova is an advocate for women’s rights. Thus, we are working to promote the gender perspective in international debates and campaigns. Including related to migration, education, addictions and mental health.
#YourVoice+ aims to give you a voice in order to help achieve the vision of the 2030 Agenda. Markedly, in a world “in which all women and girls enjoy full gender equality. And, in essence, all legal, social and economic barriers for their empowerment have been removed.”
