Gender Equality Month

March 12 @ 8:00 am - March 31 @ 5:00 pm

Advancing gender equality is a matter of human rights, justice, and fairness. It is also a strategic imperative that reduces poverty, promotes economic growth, and increases access to education and good jobs.

The Women’s Rights Movement began on July 13, 1848, when Elizabeth Cady Stanton invited some of her friends for tea. Their talk turned toward the despondent situation of women and their lack of freedom in the world. Today, we celebrate Gender Equality in March to observe women’s social, political, cultural, and academic achievements—and throughout history—and raise awareness against gender bias in our society.

The full participation of all people across all aspects of society is essential to the nation’s economic well-being, health, and security. Women continue to lead groundbreaking civil rights movements for social justice and freedom to realize equality’s full promise. During Gender Equality Month, WorkforceGPS recognizes the efforts of those who continue to carry forward the mission of ensuring equal access to the same opportunities.
