About our Make Equality Reality Gala
Since 1992, Equality Now has tackled the most difficult barriers to gender equality, challenged ingrained cultural assumptions, and called out injustice whenever and wherever we see it.
Join us in New York on October 11th as we celebrate International Day of the Girl Child with an evening of inspiring performances of music, drama, and comedy with art and advocacy supporting equality for women & girls.
