|Dear Syria Deeply community,
Because of your interest in our other News Deeply coverage, we want to share with you the launch of our newest platform, Women’s Advancement Deeply, which will cover the pursuit of economic equality for women, from securing gender-equal access to financial services to fighting for property rights and closing the pay gap. You can sign up for our newsletter here and also follow us on Twitter.
Since May 2016, we have covered issues affecting women and girls in the developing world and, as of today, the existing Women & Girls page will be archived and remain available for reference and exploration.
We’ll be working to launch other dedicated platforms in this space, and are currently exploring themes of maternal, sexual and reproductive health, as well as gender-based violence. If these topics are of interest to you, please email us – we would love your input as we scope new initiatives.
Women’s Advancement Deeply will take on the big questions about why the economic gender gap persists. We’ll provide a hub where those working to advance women’s rights can come together to understand the latest research in the field, share solutions that are working on the ground and learn how using a gender lens can help governments and investors make better decisions about how to spend their money.
We’ll combine specialist on-the-ground reporting with insights from our community of experts to help our readers understand what is, and what isn’t, working to make women’s economic advancement a reality.
To learn more about the launch and our coverage in 2018, please join us on Thursday, January 25, at 11:00 a.m. ET, for a 30-minute conversation with managing editor Megan Clement and senior editor Jumana Farouky on some of the crucial issues we’ll dig into in 2018, including the social, political and cultural barriers women and girls face in securing full economic equality. Our CEO and executive editor Lara Setrakian will join the call from the World Economic Forum in Davos, providing a look back at the biggest discussions of the week with a focus on gender. Register here.
If you are an expert on women’s economic advancement and would like to contribute to our coverage and help shape the platform, please complete this form. We look forward to working with you.
