International Women's Day

 


There has never been a better time to be born female. That’s the conclusion of a sweeping new global report that Chelsea, Melinda Gates, and I were thrilled to unveil yesterday morning. It’s called The Full Participation Report, and we can’t wait for you to see for yourself the gains that women and girls have made around the world – as well as the gaps that remain.

At NoCeilings.org, you can explore more than two decades of data from more than 190 countries and the compelling stories of women and girls from around the world that make all the statistics come alive.

We’re excited for you to dig into this data yourself – to use it, share it, learn from it, and get motivated by it. You can learn something fast or take a deep dive into the areas that interest you most. I hope you’ll visit the site today.

It’s been twenty years since the 1995 UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, where the international community pledged to work toward the full participation of women and girls in all aspects of life. Today, two decades later, it’s time to take stock.

Visit NoCeilings.org to see how far we’ve come.

There are real gains to celebrate, including more laws protecting the rights of women, more girls going to primary school, and more mothers getting access to services that can keep them healthy. Yet despite this progress, significant gaps remain around the world, including in the United States, especially in the areas of security, economic opportunity, and leadership. The evidence is clear: When it comes to gender equality, we’re just not there yet.

This data proves that progress is indeed possible, but it is not inevitable. More needs to be done to fulfill our promise and ensure that every woman and girl has the opportunity to live up to her God-given potential.

Visit NoCeilings.org to explore the gains and the gaps.

We all have a role to play in building a world of shared prosperity and opportunity. Join us as we work together to make full participation a reality in the 21st century.

Sincerely,

Hillary Rodham Clinton
