Many people are working together to help the world reach gender equality. Organisations such as UN Women, Women Worldwide, Association for Women’s Rights in Development and many more work towards a fairer world for women and girls. In our own country, the NCWNZ (National Council of Women of New Zealand) leading the way towards a more equal world where women and men alike can express themselves more freely, and where we can break free of the ‘old ideas about gender roles’.
Even in our own lives, we can promote gender equality. We can do this by recognising domestic violence, promoting and advocating women’s rights and gender equality, speaking up when you hear someone saying sexist comments or displaying sexist behaviour and further researching to educate ourselves on gender equality.
