Count Her In: Accelerating gender equality through economic empowerment

The UN Women Australia’s International Women’s Day theme for 2024 is  Count Her In: Accelerating gender equality through economic empowerment. 

Based on the priority theme for the United Nations 678th Commission on the Status of Women – Count Her In highlights “women’s economic empowerment [as a] direct path towards gender equality, poverty eradication, and inclusive economic growth”.  

As this year’s theme, Count Her In acknowledges the vast contributions women make to local and global economies, including through their unpaid care and work in the home, as well as  their participation in business, agriculture, and communities. 

Count Her In is also an opportunity to identify the barriers to a gender responsive economy, while also promoting solutions for improved economic outcomes for women and gender diverse people, and their families and communities. 

“Increasing women’s economic empowerment is felt across entire communities. Economies grow, children and families prosper, and importantly, women have resources available to leave abusive situations. This is not just an issue for women, it impacts all of us,”  

-Simone Clarke, CEO, UN Women Australia
