From UN Women:

UN Women has launched  a year-long campaign on gender equality today, 22 May!

It will feature fantastic content and monthly social media activities, all under the theme of “Empowering women, empowering humanity. Picture it!”

In 1995, the Beijing Platform for Action created a blueprint, a promise for gender equality. Twenty years later, progress has been made, but challenges remain. How do you picture gender equality? What action will you take to close the gap?

Join +UN Women and partners now for  an all-day Tweetathon to kick off the #Beijing20 campaign!
