International Women's Day 2014
International Women's Day is a time to drive progress and inspire change for girls and women around the world.
The evidence is clear: it will be impossible to achieve our global development goals without investing in girls and women first. That's why we are working every hour of every day to address the needs and rights of girls and women.
With discussions going on around the world to determine the next 15 years of global development goals, it is more important than ever that we prioritize girls and women. Hear from UN Foundation's leadership on the world they envision for girls in women in 2030.
What you can do:
Though we have made significant progress, we know that we still have work to do. In particular, we must focus efforts on the unique challenges facing adolescent girls in developing countries.
An issue you may not have heard about, but has ramification throughout a girl's life, is birth registration. Learn more and take action.
One way you can ensure girls are prioritized in the next global development framework is by joining thousands of others in signing the Girl Declaration.
This International Women's Day, join us, the United Nations and our partners to drive progress and inspire change for girls and women around the world.
