Why should we give to the Foundation?
  • 70 percent of the world’s 1.3 billion poor are women
  • Two-thirds of the illiterate adults in the world are women and two-thirds of the children not in school today are girls
  • 60 million women who should be alive today are “missing” because of violence associated with gender discrimination
  • Every month of every year, over 40,000 women in developing nations die from pregnancy related causes
  • Women comprise 48% of the work force, yet less than 5% hold senior management positions & only 10% hold seats in the world’s parliaments
  • Every year an estimated 4 million women and girls are bought and sold worldwide
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.” Margaret Mead
