International Women’s Day; Time to Take Action
Tuesday March 8 2016 is International Women’s Day (IWD). While Mozilla celebrates the progress to date we also realize there is a great deal of critical work still needed. The Internet can play an enormous role in improving the lives and opportunities of women, girls and their families. This is why I am honored to participate in the United Nations’ first High Level Panel on Women’s Economic Empowerment, which was launched this January. I am eager to emphasize the positive effects of technology and the Open Internet as part of the Panel’s work. I am also intent on representing voices from around the globe in this discussion, and have begun collecting input to do this.
