Malnutrition, much like poverty, is sexist. In virtually every country of the world, gender inequities and cultural norms hold women and girls back and render many unable to fulfil their rightful role as decision-makers – over their own minds and bodies, in their households, at work, and in their communities. Healthy women and girls, however, are the cornerstone of healthy societies. Provide girls and women access to good nutrition throughout their lives and they will deliver a healthier and wealthier world.
Our call to action!
All SUN Movement actors need to reorient their work, to translate their gender equality and empowerment commitments into action and results at the country level. Why? Because our goal is a world free from malnutrition and transforming gender inequalities and power structures is critical to achieving this goal!
