Decade Of Women Celebrate the Launch of the Year of Women Campaign
Founded by Quantum Impact Champion, Marianne Schnall
New York, New York. The Decade Of Women — a worldwide solutions campaign dedicated to complete the Equity Revolution, initiated by 5th Element Group — announced today its promotional partnership with the Year of Women campaign.
Proponents of gender equity argue that UN Sustainable Development Goal #5 is a prerequisite for achieving all the other Sustainable Development Goals. 2018 appears to be emerging as a vital pivot in our shared societal trajectory. Representatives of the Decade Of Women joined with Year of Women campaign organizers at the launch events in New York City this week.
The Year of Women was inspired and developed by Marianne Schnall, an accomplished journalist, author of What Will It Take To Make A Woman President: Conversations About Women, Leadership and Power, and a long-time advocate for women’s rights and leadership. In 1995, she founded feminist.com, encouraging women to have an online presence, and is still using her voice to pave the way for women, from founding the What Will It Take movement to writing this highly-circulated CNN article, 2018 Will Be the Year of Women, expressing reasons for women to be optimistic about this year.
These continued strides have earned her the title of UN Champion of Change and Quantum Impact Award Recipient by the Decade Of Women, in honor of her extraordinary heart for full gender equity and the great strides she has made to use her influence to make meaningful change.
Schnall reminds us that "parity for women isn't a ‘women's issue,’ it is a human issue. We all benefit from a more equal and just world. We face so many serious problems in the world right now, and we urgently need women's vital voices and visions as stewards of this planet. The time is NOW to come together collectively to boldly move the needle forward towards transformative change. The energy is there – it just needs to be focused and harnessed.”
