THE GREAT INITIATIVE is a London based charity that works to redress the gender imbalance through advocacy and education, international partnerships and supporting female entrepreneurs at a grassroots level.
Gender equality is not just a women’s issue. It is widely acknowledged that achieving gender equality at every level is a vital step to ending poverty, and although we are making big steps in the right direction there is still a huge amount to be done.
We believe that our best strategy to increase gender equality is to empower and enable individual women to take the lead on innovative projects, who have the experience, understanding and know-how to make the most impact in their communities.
We are currently building a new website to reflect our expanding work in the UK and abroad. In the mean time keep up to date with us via twitter @greatinitiative and facebook.com/thegreatinitiative
We are shaken and reeling at the sudden passing of our irreplaceable editor-in-chief, Mary Thom (June 3, 1944—April 26, 2013). Our president Julie Burton says “Mary was one of the great writers, editors, and visionaries of the women’s movement, and the heart and soul of Women’s Media Center’s feature writing. From her work in the early days of Ms. Magazine right up until this week, hers was a clear, strong voice for equality—and her editorial talents lifted so many other voices as well.” Mary, we miss you already. (A statement from WMC co-founders Robin Morgan, Gloria Steinem, and Jane Fonda is available, as is news coverage from The New York Times, AP, and CNN, among others. Information on memorial arrangements to come.)
