The #MeToo movement rocketed to prominence when women across industries and geographies shared stories of their abuse and discrimination. While much attention has been paid to the high-profile women who sparked the cultural reckoning, the most vulnerable women – on farms, and in fields, hotels, and homes – remain in the shadows, even as #MeToo has taken root across the globe, from India to Ecuador to South Korea. For decades, CARE® has led innovative programs that lift women’s voices, give women choices, and empower women workers to ignite transformational change. As part of the Make #March4Women campaign, CARE is demonstrating how to break down barriers that marginalize women around the world. This panel, featuring international leaders and activists, will kick off the campaign.
