Women and girls are at the forefront of transformative action for justice, building a world that works better for everyone. Societies with higher levels of gender equality are also characterized by less deforestation and air pollution, lower levels of conflict, and improved health of communities. Despite this, women remain underrepresented in decision-making, and are often portrayed as passive victims of conflict and climate change rather than holders of diverse knowledge and skills. In this HagueTalks, three women on the frontlines for justice will tell their personal stories of defending freedom of speech, fighting climate injustice, and tackling gender-based violence.
