At the forefront of the climate movement, demanding an end to sexual harassement, demanding a more equal world – wherever you look, girls are making waves, standing up, and changing the world.
They are the new superheroes of our time. For every year of additional schooling a girl receives on average, her country’s climate resilience improves.
But right now girls are being dragged back by a tide of poverty and climate inaction.
70% of people in poverty are women, and women and girls bear the brunt of climate catastrophe. By age 15 the odds are already hugely stacked against a girl’s success compared to boys her age.
We cannot achieve a better future when half of the population is at a disadvantage. In 2022, not a single country can claim to have achieved gender equality.
This isn’t good enough. Join thousands in calling for leaders to help every girl achieve her potential – sign the petition!
