Window of opportunity for women's funds

March 3, 2020

The time is ripe to push for gender equality and social change. Women's funds hold the keyWhen Melinda Gates made her groundbreaking pledge of $1 billion to address gender equality in the US last year, she noted "a window of opportunity" to grow women's "power and influence". She rightly credited this opportunity to the efforts of millions of women and the rise of women-driven social movements. Empowered women running for office and advocating for the rights of the marginalised are crucial to advancing gender equality. Gates also pointed out a simple truth -- this opportunity has a shelf life and now is the time to seize it. Such fleeting opportunities to create significant social change come along once every few generations. So, how do we capitalise on it?Alliance Issue: Indigenous philanthropy; March 2020, Volume 25, Number 1
