Yes to Gender Equality Movement (YGEM) is a social enterprise startup, committed to addressing gender inequality globally through the use of digital technology, VR and AR.
Gender inequality is happening everywhere in the world, it knows no boundaries of geography, culture or wealth. In the world we live in, many cultures, traditions and religious belief are against women. These negative stereotypes have made it so difficult for women/girl child to be valued in society. Although we're residing in the 21st century, girls/women, most especially from developing countries are facing so many critical issues such as gender inequality, denied an education, no freedom of choice, suffering physical and sexual assault, child marriage, rape, domestic violence & gender-based violence, honour killing etc. Due to negative stereotypes, women/girls are afraid of challenging the social norms, breaking the culture of silence and unleashing their potentials. Therefore women/ girls are less represented at work, school, politics, business etc. and this has created limitation to social development and economic growth.
YGEM is the first youth-led social enterprise, working to achieve SDG 5 goal: GENDER EQUALITY. Our work is focused on empowering women/girls in society to become independent and free from any form of physical and sexual assault. YGEM has a diverse team comprising of vibrant, passionate, and dedicated youths from different part of the world.We believe in creating:
Love should be our religion. Humanity should be our gender. Gender Equality should be our culture.
