Ask Justin Trudeau: Where’s your plan for women’s empowerment at the G7?

Prime Minister Trudeau is on record saying ‘poverty is sexist’. Now we want to see action to change this. Pandas, selfies, and feminist words are all great, but girls and women living in extreme poverty don’t need more words, they need a plan.

On June 8th, Mr. Trudeau will host the leaders of the world’s biggest economies at the G7 summit in Quebec. We’re urging him to deliver a big plan that could kick-start momentous change: a bold new initiative designed to empower women living in the world’s poorest countries.

We know our message is getting through, so help us make sure he sees this video and takes action at this year’s G7 Summit.

Women globally are fighting for an equal chance to learn, equal opportunities to earn money, and equal control over their finances. And we’re joining up with them, because we believe that none of us are equal until all of us are equal.

If every woman could unlock her own potential to work, earn and invest in the future, the impact would be revolutionary. Women would have more freedom and control over their own lives. They tend to spend more on the health and education of their children, so future generations and entire communities would benefit. And it would boost the global economy by an incredible US $28 trillion, if all gender gaps in work and society were closed.

Girls and women in the world’s poorest countries are being held back from realising their full potential and G7 leaders have the opportunity to do something about it.

Add your name to ask Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to deliver a plan that will unlock women’s potential.
