A View Across the Room During "Women in a Global Context"

Circle: Women in a Global Context
June 13, 2023
How can we enable women worldwide to achieve equality across the board? In 86 countries, women face some level of occupational restriction, and in 95 countries, they are not guaranteed equal pay for equal work. More than two-thirds of the world’s 796 million illiterate people are women. 49% of pregnancies in low- and middle-income countries are unintended. At this dinner, we highlight the work of the World Bank and the Global Financing Facility (GFF). Strengthening political will and understanding women’s diverse cultural backgrounds and specific needs are critical success factors for achieving health equity and women’s empowerment.
- Which challenges exist for health, social and economic equality? Where do actions need to be taken by European and global partners?
- What is the current state of sexual and reproductive health (SRH) in Africa?
- How can Germany’s feminist development and foreign policy support equality and access to basic socio-economic needs for women worldwide?
