Gender equality is an unresolved goal around the world. Although many countries have made progress to combat discrimination and violence against women and girls, these problems remain deeply ingrained in society. Meanwhile, in many parts of the world, non-binary and transgender people are denied the right to exist as their identities have become a political hot-button issue. People of marginalized identities are also often disproportionately affected by global issues such as climate change, poverty, and health crises.
Our stories illuminate not only the inequality women and gender minorities face around the world, but also their resilience and strength in confronting it. Through documenting their lived experiences, our coverage aims to highlight experiences across the gender spectrum that have historically been undercovered, and search for solutions for a more equitable future.
