Please help us reach our collective goal of: $4,250

$6,007 raised so far,   CONGRATULATIONS!

Welcome to SDG numero 5

It's one of those absolutely necessary goals that more often than not goes unrecognized. The kind of goal that goes out on a limb for you with no expectation of a thank you. The kind of goal that gets forgotten by major decision-making bodies - and a goal that is regularly only seen for it's body.

It's a goal that all other goals will benefit from if they pay it some attention - a goal that is most detrimentally affected when any of the other goals are ignored. 

Sustainable Development Goal 5 is to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls. 

If the reasons above haven't convinced you that this is the goal that you want to support for this year's Global Solidarity Challenge - maybe these alarming facts will: 

  • Of all women killed globally in 2012, it is estimated that almost half were killed by a partner or relative compared to less than 6% of men.
  • Over 700 million women alive today were married when they were under 18, and of those some 250 million were married before they were 15.
  • An estimated 133 million girls and women have experienced some form of female genital mutilation.
  • In a 2012 study, 92% of women reported experiencing some form of sexual violence in public spaces in their lifetime.
  • Globally, women make up just 22% of parliamentarians.
  • Worldwide women are paid less than men, in most countries earning on average 60 - 75% of menís wages.
  • Women bear disproportionate caring responsibility for children, the elderly and the sick, spending twice to ten times more time a day on unpaid care work than men.
  • Only 4% of signatories in 31 major peace processes between 1992 and 2011 were women.
  • Out of 585 peace agreements from 1990 to 2010, only 92 contained any reference to women.
  • Only 2% of aid to conflict-affected states in 2012 and 2013 targeted gender equality, and only $130 million out of almost $32 billion of total aid went to womenís equality organisations.

From the 23rd through 28th of July - Team Gender will be completing individual solidarity challenges to build greater awareness on the many injustices & obstacles faced by women around the world.

The whole gang here hopes that this beautifully informative intro message has done the trick to either:

a) Convince you to sign up for our team (just hit the registration button above and you're in)

or 

b) Convince you to toss a couple of dollars our way to support our efforts (and subsequently support all of the incredible efforts of VIDEA)

Now we will leave you with this:
