The global fund for women impact report: gender equality in Asia & the Pacific

'The Global Fund for Women took on one of the most challenging of all of the Millennium  Development Goals—MDG 3—the goal of gender equality. Specifically, the Global Fund Breakthrough Project promoted gender equality and women’s empowerment in areas that require strong women-led activism: to end violence against women, promote  women’s  participation  in  politics  and  public administration,  and  secure  property,  inheritance  rights and broader employment opportunities for women. These are three distinctly important pillars of gender equality and women’s empowerment' Brooke Ackerly, Vanderbilt University.
