and Empowerment of Women and Girls
Gender equality is a fundamental human right. Women and girls make up a vital part of our economic, social and political lives but due to discrimination, they often do not reach their full potential. While great progress has been made, women around the world continue to suffer domestic violence and discrimination, and struggle to access education. Empowerment has a multiplier effect: if all women and girls can have the equal chance and freedom to contribute to the development of their countries, hunger and poverty will reduce significantly.
