Empowering women for equal participation and driving change

Women and girls everywhere must have equal rights, opportunities, and live free of violence and discrimination. There are gender gaps related to political empowerment and economic participation and opportunity, with women facing fewer opportunities than men in all categories. Women’s equality and empowerment is one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but it is also integral to all dimensions of inclusive and sustainable development.

Considering this, VOICES project is designed to empower women to play an active role in all public and private life spheres, by providing them with customised learning opportunities developed to prompt gender-equitable participation in society.
