What do Beyoncé, John Legend and Salma Hayek Pinault have in common? The fire to fight for gender equality. Whilst it may seem that more and more people are discussing this matter, the truth is that millions of women all over the globe are still struggling to get basic equal rights.
From health to education, justice to employment, the avenues for inequality are aplenty. However, that doesn’t mean that we should give up. Raise your voice at every discrimination. Celebrate when equality wins. Support those who are brave enough to battle the odds. Because at the end of the day, every voice matters.
CHIME FOR CHANGE has joined hands with Global Citizen to bring awareness to this growing issue. 25 notable personas across various industries have signed an open letter to fight against inequality. However, that is not enough.
This International Women’s Day, we urge you to do your bit. No matter what gender you are, it’s time to take a stand. Because none of us can move forward if half of us are held back.
