In many places around the world, human rights and democracy are under threat. While we combat the global pandemic, multiple challenges are mounting in particular for the most vulnerable communities.

The European Union as well as the European financial institutions, have stood with the women and girls of the world throughout the pandemic. We need to address the root causes of gender inequality and discrimination in order to achieve sustainable change.
