'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.
