More than 33,500 girls and young women from 90 countries took part, both online and offline, and spanned across 18 languages.Today, the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts and UNICEF are launching our youth-friendly report with the consultation findings.

Zona de Impacto: Mentalities evolved; however, women are still discriminated in the job market. Why?

Statistics are known. Women have a higher qualification rate than men, but they receive less (for the same jobs) and are more precarious. When it is time to reach roles of responsibility, they have a harder life (and, as the companies get bigger, the worse it is). The topic is old, solutions take a long time to produce effects, and this worries the youth. Marta Everard and Rita Mendes, students at NovaSBE and members of the club Women on Board, explain how they perceive their labor’s future
