Stereotypes; a thing of the past as sustainable development and women’s human rights advance
World Economic Forum’s 2018 Global Gender Gap Report projects it will take 202 years to close the economic gap between men and women globally; the most challenging gender gaps being those related to economics and political empowerment.
Women’s rights have come a long way, not only through peaceful protests, but also higher-education, active public speaking, lectures, and teachings of feminist theories.
As this fourth wave of feminism embarks on a virtual journey, it is crucial we continue to contribute to the movement.
Researchers admit the gap still exists largely because of the distribution of women and men across industries; a higher portion of women holding part-time work, higher education, career choice, the hours, union coverage, and a number of other factors relate the narrowing of the gender wage gap.
To influence our governments to act promptly in addressing gender equality gaps, and putting an end to gender discrimination in the work field, MTLGBTQ+ is devoted to allocate all women’s rights knowledge, carefully researched information, to bridge our connections, and promote educational content on advancements of Women’s Rights globally.
MTLGBTQ+ supports the feminist goals of defining, establishing and defending equal civil, political, economic and social rights for women.
Our presence is crucial now, more than ever,
as we are faced with a rise in new authoritarian male leaders, aimed to create more divisions, as well as fanatics wanting to build new walls and borders.
As a result of this toxicity, we are urgently strengthening our commitments to advancing gender equality, the empowerment of women and girls, and the promotion and protection of their human rights.
