Women and girls are facing increased challenges because of COVID-19, climate change and threats to their human rights.  To respond to these challenges, we need a strong, committed community of individuals, men and women, working together for gender equality. 

“Gender equality is vital to achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, which envisions a world in which every woman and girl enjoys full gender equality. Together we can Build a Better World for Women and Girls!” said Eva Ip, president of Zonta Club of Hong Kong.

Zonta Club of Hong Kong has initiated a series of videos to raise public awareness of gender equality and mobilize people to take action together to build a better world for women and girls.  16 Days of Inspiration – 16 one-minute videos of 16 accomplished women working across different sectors in Hong Kong will be sharing their visions on how we can “Build a Better World for Women and Girls”.  The video series will be released with a kickoff by a trailer on November 8, followed by 16 video in 16 consecutive days from November 9 to 24, leading to our Zonta 16 Days of Activism campaign.

“Women should be respected. I hope women all over the world have an equal right to speak and that they could be true to themselves and have the courage to express their emotions.” said Guo Jingjing, Olympic gold medalist and UNICEF ambassador in the video. “We must act now: get young people to learn and care about the environment!” advocated Dr Rebecca Lee Lok-Sze, renowned explorer who is the first Hong Kong woman to have visited the Arctic, the Antarctica and Mount Everest. Both women are featured in the 16 Women in 16 Days series of videos.

Together, let’s build a better world for women and girls.  The time is NOW!
