“If women don’t have their hands on political power, all their other rights are under threat. And if you don’t believe that, just look at what’s happening around the world with regard to women’s reproductive rights.”
The 2019 Women Deliver conference was held in Vancouver, B.C. and hosted thousands of attendees from across the globe. It is the largest gathering on gender equality with a focus on the health, rights, and wellbeing of girls and women. The 2020 Network team was on the ground to speak with activists, politicians, and community groups about the benefits of investing in women, how to advocate on behalf of all women, and what it will take to build a more gender-balanced world.
