Women In Poverty

Though they perform 66 percent of the world’s work and produce 50 percent of the world’s food, women only earn 10 percent of the word’s income and own 1 percent of the world’s property. This is just one fact of many you’ll learn throughout our long-term campaign highlighting major themes in the film, which began April 4th with a week’s focus on Women in Poverty. Our campaign partners FITE and Dress for Success have brought you special blogs and videos, and you’ll also learn about how they are working to help women in poverty and what you can do to help. Check back every day for new content, and please share on Facebook and Tweet about it!
