Women’s World Banking, the World Bank, the Better Than Cash Alliance, and the United Nations Capital Development Fund invite you to join our Call to Action on March 8, International Women’s Day!

Today, 247 million women 15+ are living below the extreme poverty line due to inequality and COVID-19. The Generation Equality vision is to build an equal future for all.

Now is the time to swiftly act on financial equality and drive COVID-19 recovery. We will present 10 key actions for governments, companies and civil society to lead the way, followed by a facilitated discussion with our high-level government and private sector speakers.

During the panel we will discuss the importance of prioritizing digital financial inclusion for women, and what you can do to drive action.
