From the unprecedented attendance at the Women's March to the #MeToo campaign to the growing number of women running for office, this past year was an extraordinary one for women activists. Yet sexual harassment, job discrimination, pay inequality, attacks on reproductive health, lack of education for girls, and violence against women are still widespread around the world. Resistance remains as urgent as ever.
