By investing in women and girls, we can accelerate social, economic and political progress.
Women and girls make up over half of the world’s population. In the Commonwealth, that’s over one billion people. By educating them, giving them accessible health care and making sure they are treated fairly and have the same opportunities and protection as men and boys, we can go a long way towards addressing the many problems of the world.
Women and girls need to be included at all levels of decision making to ensure that their needs are properly met. This will benefit us all.
