We stand poised with a once in a lifetime opportunity to spark historic levels of investment in empowering women and girls around the world. Canada has positioned itself as the gender equality leader on the world stage. Prime Minister Trudeau has embraced the social side of innovation by delivering transformative and impactful solutions. It’s  $150 million investment in women in the international grassroots community is a game-changer. It is the single largest investment of its kind to date from any country.

“The new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) hold real promise to embed advances in women’s rights. Now it is up to all of us to hold governments accountable for their commitments and make sure the goals are met. And funding the solutions of grass-roots women’s groups – will be critical to success.” The Global Fund for Women.

Will you step up to help women and girls in the short and long term?

A global Call to Action will invite world governments to also put women and girls at the heart of their International Development strategy. We have the potential to move billions into the hands of women in the years to come with this singular change in national and global policy. It is a pivotal moment in history we cannot afford to miss.

  • Provide multiyear funding to strengthen and sustain effective women’s rights and advocacy organizations and movement building.

Multi-Year Trans‐Media Global Social Action Campaign

IMPACT:

  1. Increased access to power, resources and visibility:
    Women and girls will have equal access to services (e.g., education, health, water, sanitation); political participation and leadership. Result: improved economic autonomy and livelihoods.
  2. Changes in policies and laws:
    Women and girls will organize to advocate for laws and policies that advance and protect women’s rights; women leaders and organizations will hold Governments to account so that improved policies and laws are passed, implemented, maintained and enforced.
  3. Movement building:
    Women’s organizations will strengthen networks and coalitions. There is strong evidence that women’s empowerment and gender equality are associated with peace and stability. Equally, philanthropic investments at the grassroots generate significant returns on gender equality. 

Example. $20M raised through the WDL platform would bring 1000 ground-breaking grassroots women’s initiatives to life – and progress to the women they serve.

A THRESHOLD MOMENT IN HISTORY TO CHANGE THE CULTURE
