To celebrate International Women's Day 2016, we raised awareness of women's participation in politics and leadership.
Women only account for 22% of politicians globally and, while great progress has been made since the Suffragette movement started over a century ago, there are still barriers to women's participation.
When women’s voices aren't heard in decision making, the deep-rooted causes of gender inequality, discrimination and unequal access to essential things like healthcare and education remain.
We work with women’s rights organisations around the world to change that – but there’s still a long way to go for women to have the same leadership opportunities as men.
Suffragette Roulette app
For International Women's Day, we launched app to raise awareness of the challenges women face getting elected around the world. The app, inspired by the Suffragette’s original Pank-a-Squith
board game, features real-life hurdles women face to have their voices heard in politics – from Twitter sexism to assassination attempts.
Will you take on the patriarchy to get elected?
