International President’s Appeal 2019-2021 – The Road to Equality

SI President, Sharon Fisher, invites us all to join her on her 2-year road trip – ‘The Road to Equality’, which aims to advance the human rights and Equality of women and girls through empowerment and education. Gender Equality is a cross cutting issue and women and girls are at the centre.

The Appeal will target some of the worst causes of inequality and learn the root causes, hear stories from those who are in the “fight” for change and develop our voices to become advocates.
