How can all succeed if many are held back?

What do women want? Equal pay. Access to education. The eradication of forced marriages. To not have to teach their daughters how to walk home at night, keys clutched in hand. Think only women want to live this way? No. We can, and must make the world a better place for women – for everyone.
