This year marks the 20th anniversary of the UN Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing (1995) where important people from all over the world gathered together fully committed to ensure that women and girls have the opportunity to participate fully in all aspects of their life.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the No Ceilings initiative of the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation have joined forces to gather 850,000 data points and analyze the gains made for women and girls over the last two decades, as well as the gaps that remain.

Take a good look at the findings but we're not there yet:  No Ceilings:  The Full Participation Project
