As part of the Generation Equality Forum in 2021, Global Count asked women, non-binary, and transgender people from every country, culture, and racial background what issues are most important to them, what should be done to solve problems, and what meaningful progress looks like in ten years. Today Global Count carries on, focused on holding leaders accountable for promised gender equality actions.
- Ending Violence, Harassment & Abuse
- Education and Youth Empowerment
- Civil Rights and Freedoms
To me, (progress for women’s human rights) looks like a total restructuring of our society, meaning patriarchy is not the dominant structure and that our governments, policing system, economy, schools, and jobs are less hierarchical, less fueled by toxic masculinity, and more collaborative.Global Count Participant
