ABOUT ABOUT

What would the world be like if it were more gender-balanced? How would it change our homes, our communities and even our planet? From opportunity, to access to equal pay, and much more, 50/50 Day is committed to helping everyday people become champions and active participants in the changes our world so desperately needs.

On April 26, all over the world, thousands of organizations, schools, museums, libraries and homes -- anywhere people already gather -- will be hosting free film screenings and tapping into a global online discussion about how we are going to get to a more gender-balanced world that is better for everyone. 

Over 30,000 groups around the globe are already signed up for the second annual 50/50 Day, and Vision 2020 is the host in Philadelphia again!
