Call to Action: Gender Equality and Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment

Malnutrition, much like poverty, is sexist. In virtually every country of the world, gender inequities and cultural norms hold women and girls back and render many unable to fulfil their rightful role as decision-makers – over their own minds and bodies, in their households, at work, and in their communities. That’s why Save the Children, Global Affairs Canada, and Nutrition International have collaborated with the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Lead Group to launch the Call to Action - Scaling Up Gender Equality and Women’s and Girls’ Empowerment to Fight Malnutrition
