In honor of International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month, the GoPhil community came together to celebrate the achievements of women leaders from program partners who #ChooseToChallenge gender bias and inequality every day.
Throughout March we shared some incredible stories of women’s leadership and courage from GoPhil program partners. These women are on the frontlines of tackling some of the most difficult global issues including human trafficking, child marriage, gender-based violence, and human rights abuse.
We are grateful to all women leaders who shared their stories with us and inspired us to #ChooseToChallenge gender inequality with them. Click on the videos below to hear from these courageous women.
