50/50 Day: Celebrating Gender Equality

Participate in the second annual 50/50 Day on April 26, 2018! This global initiative promotes a gender balanced world where everyone’s voice is heard in all aspects of society. Thousands of people and organizations, including AnitaB.org, will participate in 50/50 Day through various means. Here are some ways you can join the movement.

1) Watch Films and Programming about 50/50 Day

See the film that started the movement! Watch 50/50: Rethinking the Past, Present, and Future of Women + Power to learn more about 50/50 Day and why it is so crucial to build a gender balanced world. You can also watch last year’s interviews with various prominent leaders, conducted by Tiffany Shlain, our 2015 Women of Vision Keynote Speaker. And don’t forget to livestream this year’s speakers and events here.

2) Download Discussion Materials

Start the conversation on how to create change. Check out these 50/50 Day discussion guides for both children and adults. These questions are a great way to introduce students, co-workers, and other peers to the issue of gender imbalance, and to get them thinking about innovative solutions.

3) Commit to Action Pledges

Be the change you wish to see. Individuals and organizations can commit to various action items that will help them promote gender equality. The 50/50 Day team will release action pledges for you to choose from, but you are more than welcome to come up with your own. To connect and share resources with other allies, join the 50/50 Day Facebook group.
