5 ways to help Stop Gender Inequality (in your community and in the world!)

1. Stand up for your rights!

If you are a woman, know your rights, and most importantly, voice them! As a member of the workforce in the United States, you are entitled to the same rights as your male counterparts. Be sure to encourage other women to do the same.

2. Raise awareness.  

There are many facts and issues that the public at large is unaware of, especially the state of women in developing countries, including the realities of female child abuse and sexual violence. Talk about what you know. Increase public consciousness of the reasons for, extent of, and consequences of rape and sexual assault, sexual harassment, and pornography.

3.  Sponsor a child.

There are many young girls in the world who are in need of a sponsor, a role model – someone to look up to and to gain wisdom from. This is especially true in the MENA area (Middle East and African area). Look into programs that reap significant benefits on behalf of the girls sponsored and then make a difference!

4. Involvement in politics.

There are many social and political reforms across the globe promoting women’s rights that are in need of support. Find some and pick one to become involved in, and then petition, petition, petition until you see change…and you will!

5.  Be an activist.

You can form your own activist committee! Work as a team to raise funds to spread awareness and build educational institutions across the world. You can be a part of it!
