On the Move for Gender Equity

The video you are about to see is the result of the Latin American Gender Equality Project.

As a woman, a mother, a wife and an educator, gender equity is an issue that is very close to my heart and frankly, an idea whose time has come.

We are long overdue for our children to see boys and girls sharing the sandbox equally.

Women make up more than 50 percent of the world, yet the messages in the media, in many homes and classrooms around the world are that women and girls have less value than men and boys.

We aren’t supposed to be leaders. Our place is in the home. We shouldn’t have goals and dreams. Those are reserved for our brothers, husbands and fathers. How dare we go to the edge of greatness and achievement? Who do we think we are?
