Atlanta-based leaders discuss the state of women globally
Women from across the world are being celebrated in honor of International Women’s Day.
According to the International Women’s Day website, the global holiday seeks to shine the light on the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.
This year’s theme #BreakTheBias calls for people to actively call out gender bias, discrimination and stereotyping.
Across social media platforms, people posted pictures of themselves with their hands forming an X shape to stand in solidarity.
On Tuesday’s edition of ‘Closer Look” program host Rose Scott talked with Paige Alexander, the CEO of the Carter Center; Saleemah Abdul-Ghafur, an Atlanta-based global activist and the communications division director and chief of staff in the Office of the CCO at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; and Michelle Nunn, the president and CEO of CARE USA, about several topics, including how women are fairing globally amid the pandemic and how women are responding to the Ukraine crisis.
