What’s at stake?

Professional sports is only one of the many industries where women face gender discrimination that stops them from receiving equal pay and opportunity. We will not end poverty until women and men are on a level playing field in the workplace.

What can we do?

The United Nations’ Global Goal 5 aims to empower all women and girls. Call on leaders to ensure we don’t fall even more behind in achieving gender equality.
