Ignite: Women Fueling Science and Technology, a project of the Global Fund for Women, is gathering signatures on a petition to be presented to the UN and other world leaders on International Women’s Day. Below is a short description from the Ignite website. The petition can be found here.
“A global technology revolution is taking place, and if women and girls aren’t part of it, the future for women’s human rights is bleak. Global Fund for Women has joined forces with UN Women to create the Fueling Change Petition. Your signature will be included when we deliver the Petition to some of the world’s leading decision makers for International Women’s Day in March 2015. The petition will be delivered to the Director General of UNESCO, the Secretary-General of ITU (International Telecommunication Union), the Chair of the 59th session of the Commission on the Status of Women, and the President of the General Assembly of the United Nations.
Global Fund for Women and UN Women have come together to call for action. Help us reach our goal of 20,000 signatures by March 5, 2015! Sign now.”
