Open Forum on Gender: "Getting to Equal" - 24 Hour chat with Gender experts now on

It’s 2011. Today, there is global recognition of women’s rights. More girls go to school, rapidly closing (and in some cases, even reversing) the gender gap in education. There has been a sharp decline in fertility rates.

Yet worldwide, women make up the majority of unpaid workers. Only 15% of landowners and one in five lawmakers n the world are women. One out of every 10 births are by mothers ages 15-19, almost all of them in developing countries. Violence against women is still widespread.

It’s time to increase women’s economic opportunity and their voice in decision making. It’s time to think EQUAL. You care about getting to EQUAL.

On September 20-21, 2011 the World Bank is hosting its third Open Forum, a global conversation to look at what changes are needed in the world for women and men to be equal.
