Reaching Financial Equality for Women

“The impact of COVID-19 has hit women and girls hard. The World Bank reports that 2021 will bring the first increase in extreme poverty since 1998, with a minimum of 71 million people expected to fall into destitution, and UN Women estimates that at least 47 million more women and girls will fall below the poverty line in 2021. There will be at least 247 million women 15+ living in extreme poverty this year.”
