From Plan to Action

Spring 2020: Celebrate IWD through learning

Celebrate IWD Through Learning

Young men and women in Ecuador attend a workshop on gender-based violence. 

Achieving gender equality requires the engagement of women and men, girls and boys. It is everyone’s responsibility.” – Ban Ki-Moon

How are you creating a gender-equal world? It will take each and every one of us to reach gender parity. This issue of Plan for Action explores what happens when you engage girls in the design of a project aimed at keeping girls in school (hint: they challenge common assumptions). In addition, a new gender tool called the Gender Transformative Marker is discussed. Finally, you will find information on how you can play a role in ensuring the Keeping Girls in School Act passes in the Senate – including attending an invite-only event on Capitol Hill!
