Feminism, at its core, is about fighting for the equality of all genders. A common misconception is that feminism only fights for “women’s issues.” In reality, true feminism is intersectional and advocates for all people regardless of gender, race, socioeconomic status, ability, or sexual orientation. Some issues the feminist movement is currently involved with include reproductive rights, domestic violence, parental leave, equal pay in the workforce, and sexual harrassment.
Gender equality is the state of equal access to rights and opportunities, regardless of gender. It is a fundamental human right and a necessary foundation for a peaceful and sustainable society.
Most importantly, gender equality saves lives. It deters gender-based violence and disproportionate life-threatening risks. Gender equality also benefits the development of societies through economic stimulation, improved healthcare, and enhanced education.
Gender equality benefits everyone. Businesses that provide diverse and inclusive workplaces enjoy increased employee engagement and expanded marketplace reach. Addressing gender biases through Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) can help align organizational mission, values, and business practices.
