Empowering women, inspiring futures

Below is the brochure for this year's International Women's Day, which focuses on empowering women and inspiring futures. The following is an excerpt from the publication, which can be downloaded below.

One girl in five who enrols in primary school does not complete her education, and one girl in seven in developing countries marries before the age of 15. One in three women will experience physical violence from a male partner during their lifetime. Because women and girls account for close to 70% of the one billion people worldwide who live in extreme poverty, global poverty has a distinctly female face.
