Celebrating Women in Sustainability

By Sheila Bonini, Senior Vice President, Private Sector Engagement, World Wildlife Fund

In March 1911, more than one million women and men took to the streets to campaign for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, hold public office, and end discrimination.

But looking forward, we must continue identifying and eliminating barriers that persist for women and all individuals.
