At CSW60, women leaders define what #InequalityIs

This month, delegates gathered at the UN for the 60th session of the Commission for the Status of Women, focused on issues related to women and gender worldwide. Among them were many of our partners, who came to the foundation’s headquarters to celebrate their hard work in making women and girls a key part of the Sustainable Development Goals—and to weigh their continuing efforts to fight inequality and advance gender equity.
 
We asked the delegates to tell us what inequality means to them.
