Tune in and participate in the largest ever online gathering of people of all genders who support gender equality. Now more than ever we need to find community; to connect women, civil society and governments and make women’s stories central to future planning across the globe.

This is an opportunity to join hands, listen and ask  ‘what do we need to change, and how’?
