Sign our petition to end the global gender technology gap today!


The National Girls Collaborative Project is collaborating with UN Women and will be joining this global campaign. Please distribute this to your networks as well. Watch our social media channels and distribute on your own as well.

Women and girls have the ability and ingenuity to ignite change – but will be limited in doing so unless they are equal players in science and technology. Right now, women around the globe are too often excluded from the global technology revolution. The result: more inequality, less innovation, and solutions that leave women out.

Join UN Women and the Global Fund for Women to demand equal access to and control of technology for women and girls worldwide. Sign our petition to end the global gender technology gap today by calling on governments, regional institutions, and the United Nations to make sure women and girls are at the center of the science and technology revolution.

The petition is part of IGNITE: Women Fueling Science and Technology, a global campaign and media project from Global Fund for Women, with UN Women as a major partner, explores the roles of science and technology in advancing gender equality. IGNITE features stories of women and girls who are leading and innovating in science, technology, engineering, and math, and highlights the gender gap in technology. Explore IGNITE to learn more about why technology is a women’s human rights issue, and to get inspired by creative women and girls globally to #BeTheSpark and take action.
