Restless Women: How can we #EmbraceEquality?

On Wednesday the 8th of March we celebrated International Women’s Day!

We heard from three inspirational panellists from across the world at Restless Development, who are demonstrating gender equity in their daily lives. They discussed topics from ending violence and discrimination against women and girls to tackling access to education issues, to disrupting legal, cultural and social inequities that are harmful to women. These Restless women shared how we can collectively #EmbraceEquality.

Working with women living in informal settlements made me feel proud. It was an opportunity for me to help women, & contribute to societal development and sharpen my advocacy and mobilization. Given the opportunity, I would do this again
