One Day on Earth 11.11.11

Gender Equality

Poverty, access to education, abuse, limited health care, and discrimination are all causes and effects of the opportunity gap between women and men. The UNDP estimates that female losses in achievement due to gender inequality range anywhere from 17 percent to 85 percent. Happily, these numbers are improving steadily over time.

Many organizations and individuals are making tremendous efforts to narrow the gap through promotion of rights at work principles, social protections, increasing awareness and fostering dialogue. One Day on Earth invites women and the community of those dedicated to promoting gender equality to share the story of women in the 21st century by filming with us on 11.11.11.

I will be filming a woman who is directly involved in empowering women in West Nusa Tenggara as part of the National Program for Community Empowerment in Indonesia.
