At USAID, we believe that when a woman rises, the world rises. It is at the foundation of our work not only when we focus on gender-specific initiatives, but also climate change, education, entrepreneurship and democracy. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a significant impact on women and girls. But many are showing us how to persevere. So for this Women’s History Month, we celebrate their creativity and resilience.
