Why is gender equality so important?

UN Women video shows why empowering women impacts everyone for the better

Ethiopia Shewa

Encouraging gender equality is a big part of our work around the world, and it’s an important global goal, as highlighted in the video below by UN Women.


“Gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a precondition for ending poverty, building peaceful societies and achieving sustainable development,” reports the video.


At Christian Children’s Fund of Canada, we work with women, men and children to create communities where everyone can thrive in a healthy environment while contributing to the economy and their future.


Watch the video below to see how women and men need to work together to contribute to creating lasting positive change.
