People Linking to Embrace and Develop Gender Equality
Everyone enjoys equal opportunities, choices, resources and services in a gender equal world. A world that is better, safer and fairer for all of us, with balanced, more successful families, richer workplaces and healthier communities.
Gender equality is the state in which access to rights or opportunities is unaffected by gender.
PLEDGE shares a commitment to act as champions for change, to impact the views of generations and reach the Knox community to take a stand and advance gender equality. We all have a role in building understanding and acting for greater equality in our workplaces, places of study and community, as well as changing attitudes to gender inequality that contribute to violence against women.
