What Gives You Hope?

“When we can see the light, we can help it spread.

In a world where women face marginalization, isolation, and rising insecurity, it can often feel like the future will be a bleak and dark place. But we know that there are extraordinary moments each and every day that show us how the future can—and will—look when we achieve lasting equality. 

As 2018 winds down, we invite you to share stories about the moments, people, experiences, or beliefs that inspire you to keep going. 

Whatever it is that gives you hope, share it here. Together, we'll shine a light on the bright spots that are often hiding in plain sight.
