Women and Girls | Overview

Women and Girls

In the U.S., women earn just 82 cents for every dollar men earn, and Black women are paid 62 cents on every dollar paid to white men. Discrimination and lack of support for childcare are just a few obstacles that reduce the rights of women. Globally, poverty and lack of access to education often negatively impact girls, but donors can support sustainable approaches and use a gender-based lens when funding solutions.
