Welcome to Equiterra, where gender equality is real
Want to see what gender equality looks like? Join us for a tour of Equiterra, where all people have equal rights and opportunities, regardless of their gender. Where women and girls feel safe when walking at night. They get paid equally to men for work of equal value. Men and women share chores and care duties at home and are equally represented in political offices, corporate boardrooms and factory floors. Equiterra exists only in our imagination, but it’s a place that we can all aspire to build.
Even though 193 countries signed on to the most comprehensive global roadmap to destination “gender equality”, the Beijing Platform for Action, 25 years ago, no country to date has achieved it. There has been a lot of progress since then, but many of the promises are yet to be fulfilled.
This publication includes a poster and a brochure.
