Women around the world work hard to support their families and put food on the table—whether at a formal job site, in the home, or in informal community economies.
Together, women around the world are...
- Finding ways to support one another and increase their economic security;
- Forming collectives to improve their bargaining and advocacy standing;
- Sharing their knowledge and expertise with other women; and
- Speaking out for their fair share of the resources and opportunities they need for themselves, their families, and their communities.
I believe that every woman, no matter where she lives, deserves equality and freedom. She deserves the ability to earn a solid living and to have a fair shot at the resources and support she needs to succeed. Women are agents of change. When they thrive, whole families do too. I will stand with working women around the globe who do not want a handout but a hand up. And I pledge to support laws and policies that help women break free of poverty and inequality.
