Replicating Successes For Women, Girls Can Help World Make Progress Toward Gender Equality

CNN: Melinda Gates’ advice to girls: ‘Use your voice and you can affect change’
Melinda Gates, co-chair of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

“The most rewarding part of my job is meeting women and girls from all over the world who are striving for the same goal: a good life for themselves and their families. … By studying the areas where women and girls have made the most progress in the past 20 years, we can learn to replicate those successes in other areas. And because the [No Ceilings] report identifies where the biggest gaps are, we have what amounts to a blueprint for action. … Even though we’ve made great strides, there’s still work to do. … It is up to all of us … to commit to the work of full participation and ensure a promising future for us all” (4/24).
