On 8 March 2021 we will celebrate the achievements of women the world over. Now is the moment to look at how far we’ve come – and it is also the moment to see how far we’ve got left to go. Thewoment.org celebrates the achievements of women across the world in diverse fields – economics, politics, business, sport and media.
In a world where women serve as heads of state in only 22 countries, and where 119 countries have still never had a woman leader, now is the moment for change.
In a world where only 1% of venture capital funding is awarded to female-led start-ups, and where almost 50% of investment teams do not include a single woman, now is the moment for change.
In a world where women still account for less than 50% of athletes at the Olympic Games, now is the moment for change.
In a world where the highest paid actor still earns more than double the highest paid actress, now is the moment for change.
More than ever before, now is our time to challenge the status quo and take action for equality. Now is the time to forge a more gender equal world. Now is the time to celebrate the achievements of every woman, everywhere. Our time is now.
