Join us and add your voice to Global Fund for Women’s online petition, co-presented with UN Women, calling for governments and the United Nations to take action to end the gender gap in technology to advance women’s rights. Sign the petition today to demand women and girls’ equal access to and control of technology.

Our goal is to reach 20,000 signatures by March 5, 2015 in time to deliver the petition to some of the world’s leading decision makers, including several United Nations leaders and governments, for International Women’s Day in March 2015.
