Ever since the 1848 women's rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York, forward-looking individuals have sought to secure women’s equal participation in society. Now we are at an inflection point: economic research and experience across sectors demonstrate that investing in women and girls is one of the most effective catalysts for global development and economic growth the world has ever seen.
"Gender equality is smart economics."
– The World Bank
Women today influence nearly 75% of purchasing decisions in the US and 65% globally, amounting to over $20 trillion of consumer spending. Research also shows that investing in strategies to advance women and girls yields a double dividend as women are more likely than men to put their income back into their families and communities, driving illiteracy and mortality rates down and GDP up. As a result, no enterprise seeking to contribute to global progress or compete for global growth can afford to ignore this fast-emerging force.
"The truth is that women are already the most dynamic and fastest-growing economic force in the world today."
– Muhtar Kent, CEO, Coca-Cola
