Building peace in the minds of men and women

Gender Equality Challenges

22 February 2019

At the beginning of the year, social media have witnessed a new phenomenon: the "10 Years Challenge". While millions of people took this opportunity to show their evolution, other users remembered the changes of the planet Earth in the past 10 years.

In line with this new movement, UNESCO is launching a digital campaign on the #GenderChallenges the world has been facing for the past 10 years or more.

As Gender Equality is a UNESCO’s global priority and a necessary step to the achievement of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals, it is important to shed some light on the achievements of the past 10+ years. This is why the UNESCO #GenderChallenge campaign, though a series of visuals, will share some facts and figures about women’s empowerment in UNESCO’s domains.

The # GenderChallenges campaign aims to bring global awareness to this crucial human right, which is still not a reality for millions, and encourage all to support change in their communities.

Join UNESCO’s #GenderChallenges campaign and help spread the messages about this key human right with the power to transform lives around the world! 

Stay tuned for our upcoming facts and figures.
