Gender equality means giving both women and men the chance to access equal resources and opportunities. Then it is up to the individual, regardless of gender, to use them and contribute to the greater good of the global community. - Laura Gagliardone

Gender Equality is achieved when both women and men, enjoy the same rights and opportunities without discrimination across all sectors of society, including; economic participation, decision-making, and when the different behaviours, aspirations and needs of women and men are equally valued and favoured. - Esther Namukasa
