This Week: #ActForEqual Week of Action
Let’s raise our voices to make sure everyone realizes what an important and critical moment this is, and to make sure that leaders from every part of society step up at the event and commit to change.
Each day, the UN Women global Instagram and Facebook accounts will host a young activist and give them the platform to talk about a specific thematic area that they are passionate about. We encourage you to do the same on your corporate and individual accounts.
