This year in the United States, we celebrate a landmark of the women’s suffrage movement—the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment. And just this week, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Civil Rights Act of 1964 applies to discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Yet gender inequities remain a barrier to good health and well-being. Across the globe, nations and communities are finding ways to ensure everybody has a fair and just opportunity to live their healthiest life possible, regardless of gender or sexual identity.
That’s why RWJF’s Evidence for Action (E4A) Program and Global Ideas for U.S. Solutions team are releasing a special call for proposals:Approaches to Advance Gender Equity from Around the Globe—to learn from efforts in other countries to ensure that all people—regardless of gender or sexual identity—have access to the opportunities and resources they need to stay healthy.
Through this funding opportunity, up to $1 million USD will be awarded to learn from gender equity initiatives underway from other countries that are supported by evidence and have the potential to be adapted and implemented to improve health and well-being in the United States.
