From Eleanor Roosevelt, Rosa Parks, Malala Yousafzai to Susan B. Anthony, women have played crucial catalytic roles across history in the fight for universal basic freedoms, across society and gender.

As we mark International Women’s Day on the 8th of March, join Human Rights Watch’s Next Gen community in partnership with The Conduit, to explore gender inequality, women’s empowerment and how women mobilise broader human movements.
