8M: continuing progress towards equality between men and women

8 March marks International Women’s Day. It is a good time to reflect on the progress made, to call for more change and to celebrate the courage and determination of ordinary women who have played a key role in the history of their countries and communities.

The world has made unprecedented progress, but no country has achieved gender equality. In order to take action for an equal future for all, the Equality Generation Forum, the most important meeting for investment and action for gender equality, will kick off in Mexico City on 29-31 March and close in Paris in June 2021. This virtual event will bring together leaders, visionaries and activists from around the world to drive transformative and lasting change for generations to come.

We pray that gender equality will no longer be an afterthought, but a reality in the not too distant future.
