Why women and girls?

Every day, women and girls are living in poverty and denied fundamental human rights like education, health care, and freedom – even though they are the key to a better future for their families and communities. Around the world, women work two-thirds of all working hours, earning only 10% of the world’s income. When women cannot contribute to their family’s and community’s economic development, a powerful resource goes untapped. That’s why CARE’s programs are defined by promoting gender equality and empowering women.

CARE’s Walk In Her Shoes takes place here in the U.S. and all over the world. Taking steps in solidarity with women and girls creates an understanding of the challenges so many of us face every day.
