People making change. Women raising their voices. And the organizations standing with them.

 

you already know:

In the U.S., Black women make 60 cents and Hispanic women 55 cents for every dollar paid to a white male.

In India, 55% of couples who have a girl will try for another child and will keep trying until they have a boy.

In Europe, women account for an average 20.2% of the members of board of directors in the largest companies, and only 3% become chief executive officer.

  1. ACTION

 

A Beginner’s Guide to Supporting Gender Equality

💥GENDER EQUALITY ACTIVISTS + ORGANIZATIONS💥

The first step to supporting a cause is understanding it. To do this, we must know the activists and organizations making a REAL difference.

We created a list of the top gender equality activists, advocates, and organizations to follow and support on Twitter.

Subscribe to the list. Share their content. Learn.

💰PUT YOUR MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS💰

Each day we make decisions about WHO and WHAT we are supporting by which brands, organizations, and companies we give our money to. Often, many of these decisions are made consciously. But in order to be conscious citizens, it is our responsibility to learn and begin to make decisions with this in mind. While our hope is that all of us begin to consider who we are supporting and whether or not the organization is proactive in matters we care about, we’ve created a starting point.

Below is an assortment of Gender Equality conscious and positive organizations and brands to support.

📚EDUCATE YOURSELF 📚

Gender Equality is a global issue with incredibly diverse circumstances that vary country to country, town to town, person to person. It’s important to understand the vast differences and issues that fit within this scope.

Educating yourself about Gender Equality should be an ongoing process. However, we have provided you starting point to learn about Gender Equality on a global level.

🎙RECENT EPISODE

Join Notably Wild host Ambar Januel for a discussion featuring entrepreneurs Sandra Medina and Luisa Javier who are currently creating Wayakit and pursuing PhDs in Saudi Arabia. We chat about the cultural change moving from Latin American countries to Saudi. We cover gender equality, culture across different countries, and how the media helps shape misconceptions.

Men want to talk about what women in Saudi Arabia need, and the more liberal men say this is what women WANT - but there’s not a lot of women talking about what they need and want.

3. AWARENESS

 

Gender Equality on a Global Level

When engaging in an important social cause, the largest impact lies where we personally understand the most: in our local communities. Being able to support gender equality on a global level requires that we educate ourselves and connect with our local communities - and help others do the same. (Tweet this).

Consider this. What does gender equality look like in your community?
