NEW YORK -- This year marks the 100th anniversary of women earning the right to vote in the U.S. and March is Women's History Month so there's no better time to shine a light on where things stand in relation to gender equality. Join Eyewitness News Anchor Sade Baderinwa as we take an in-depth look at the past, present, and future of women's rights.
Teaming up with UN Women, we'll learn about progress across the globe undertaken by people on the front lines in the fight for gender equality. We'll hear from the reigning Miss Universe, an Oscar-nominated filmmaker, an award-winning documentarian; to activists, entrepreneurs and our leaders of tomorrow.
And it's not just women taking up the cause, we'll learn how men are getting involved with programs like the UN Women's "HeforShe" campaign, giving men the tools to take action. And you'll meet two inspiring U.S. Amy veterans who are helping to educate girls in Afghanistan by raising money with the sale of flip flops.
This eye-opening half-hour will hopefully help viewers walk away feeling informed and inspired while still acknowledging the work that needs to be done.
Join us as we celebrate and spread the universal message... "Human rights are women's rights, and women's rights are human rights."
