Women as agents for change

The challenges facing women around the world are a clarion call for the Commonwealth member states to lead the international community towards improvements in economic growth, meaningfully reducing poverty, ensuring the promotion of human rights, and ultimately establishing good governance.

~ Dr. Dambisa Moyo

Women as Agents for Change was the theme for Commonwealth Day 2011. Celebrated throughout the year, the theme raises awareness that by investing in women and girls, we can accelerate social, economic and political progress.
