Latanya Mapp Frett, President & CEO of the Global Fund for Women and author of The Everyday Feminist: The Key to Sustainable Social Impact-Driving Movements We Need Now More Than Ever, emphasizes the crucial role of everyday feminism in driving social change in communities. Everyday feminists, often mothers and caregivers, utilize an intersectional approach to tackle social, gender, racial, and climate justice issues. Despite their substantial impact, they face challenges, especially the scarcity of resources as they receive only 1.9% of gender equality funding. The Global Fund for Women aims to support these grassroots movements by providing necessary resources. Mapp Frett urges collective responsibility to amplify the voices of everyday feminists and provide support to facilitate lasting change.
