Now is the time. Time for Change. Put your Heart in Action to support education, end to violence and equal opportunity.

We have this once in a lifetime opportunity to change the future course of history for women and girls.

This is an evolutionary moment in our culture we cannot afford to miss. Transformational change is possible and it is coming from Canada!

JOIN US. BE A WOMEN’S DAY LIVE CHAMPION.

WDL will create the biggest Give Back Day of the year. WDL offers a global charitable platform that all NGO’s can use to help women and children. The need is great given this global humanitarian crisis. Funds raised will go to women’s grassroots funds for education and for Humanitarian Aid. Investing in the leadership of women and girls is an investment in the future. It is time to level the playing field. This is a new game.

EDUCATE THE HEART

“To remain indifferent to the challenges we face is indefensible... What we must do, therefore, is to strive and persevere and never give up. We have an exceptional opportunity to Educate the Heart, to help people navigate the world with compassion, acceptance and tolerance…”

HIS HOLINESS, THE DALAI LAMA

Challenges us to open our hearts and seize the moment to be a caring and eloquent voice for change.

The future is in our hands.

Women’s Day Live will invite all media, entertainment and tech leaders who have joined our efforts to support the UN Women’s Global Coalition of Leaders to help UN Women galvanize the world to “Step It Up for Gender Equality”.

Achieving gender equality and sustainable development by 2030 will require all of us stepping up efforts on every front.

 

CSW64 / Beijing+25 (2021)

In 2020, the global community will mark the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women and adoption of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (1995). A five-year milestone will be reached towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

THE POWER OF MUSIC WILL BRING THE WORLD TOGETHER. ONE DAY UNITE.

Celebrate the power of diversity, inclusion and equal opportunity.

This is Live Aid Women. Global reach. Local Impact. Millions of people worldwide are awakening to their collective power and are calling for equal opportunity and justice regardless of race, gender or religion. The struggle for equality belongs to all of us given the alarming rise in inequality worldwide.

We stand poised with a historic opportunity to use the power of music to connect the world together for a day of unity and a new vision of hope for humanity.

Launching this annual Women’s Day Live Benefit and Celebration on International Women’s Day aims to grow a global advocacy and sustainable annual fund-raising platform to support UN Women and Global Women’s Funds in the grassroots which will create a lasting legacy.

Join the Movement to drive transformative change

Participants have all agreed that empowering women is central to addressing the 21st century’s global challenges such as poverty, inequality, and violence. Yet, deep financing gaps for women and girls pose significant barriers and deter progress. I call on both current and potential partners to join this movement to drive the transformative changes needed”.

Canada’s investment is historic. It’s a Game-Changer!

Canada’s new Feminist International Assistance Policy, placing women and girls at the heart of the International Development agenda is historic. It is a game-changer.

Women's Day Live offers a unique opportunity to take the lead on a bold initiative that can be very effective in mobilizing resources and impacting national and global policy.

This momentous global media event will tap the enormous potential of this pivotal moment in history to align and unite women’s power, voice and leadership.

Women’s Day Live will be a true testament to the will of humanity and the power of music to bring people together for a common cause. Actualizing equal opportunity for women and girls is the most profound moral imperative of the 21st century.
