Women 2020

How will we lift up all women — across racial and socioeconomic differences?

Despite exciting gains (first all-female spacewalk, more women heads of state than ever), and meaningful anniversaries (100 years of suffrage, for some), there isn’t a country on Earth where women have achieved gender equality. Political participation across the globe is stronger than ever, companies with women in C-suites have comparatively higher profits, and opportunities for young women abound. Yet the dumbfounding forecast that it will take 208 years to reach gender equality in the United States is beyond dismal. How can we move the needle faster? How will we lift up all women — across racial and socioeconomic differences? As we celebrate victories and examine disparities, we will look in on and learn from contemporary movements, and take stock of the state of feminism.
