Melinda Gates, Julia Gillard and Winnie Byanyima talk gender equality | The Stream

Against the backdrop of the Women Deliver Conference in Vancouver, Canada three high-profile women delegates join the programme for a candid conversation about leadership, their careers and the importance of mentorship.

Melinda Gates is fresh off her book tour for “The Moment of Lift: How Empowering Women Changes the World”. In her book she shares her story of balancing family, being a tech pioneer and philanthropist and seeking gender equality in her own life. Her work with The Gates Foundation aims to eradicate malaria, provide vaccinations for all, and give access to contraceptives worldwide. She pulls from lessons learned through the inspiring women she’s met worldwide, and everything is personal for her, including the creation of the Giving Pledge.

Julia Gillard heads up the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College London, which works towards a world where being a woman is not a barrier to becoming a leader in any field. And Gillard knows about leading; she served as prime minister of Australia and leader of the Labor party from 2010 to 2013. She was recently named one of the 100 Most Influential People in Gender Policy for 2019.

Another powerhouse on the list, Winnie Byanyima, is Executive Director of OXFAM International. She had a viral moment in January when discussing inequality at Davos with Dutch historian Rutger Bregman. At this year’s Women Deliver Conference she wants to focus on tackling and dismantling unjust economic models that exploit women and children. She also wants to urge governments to plan for growth that puts children in school, and levels men and women.

Join the conversation with these three influential women.

  1. Thank you for watching, everybody. More from The Stream here: aljazeera.com/thestream

  2. Absolute rubbish. Females want equality. Well work as your male counterparts do…

  3. We are equal in that we are both creation. Of God. We are made of flesh and blood. We are subject to death, pain happiness and suffering. Both men and women are created to complement to each other. It takes bilateral sexes nuance perfection in this world. Without men and women the world would not be the same as it ic today. Wouldn’t it be better if we cooperated instead of rivaling. That’s nonsense.

  4. The other thing to Realise is the Huge History of Men and Women. Without Women or Men we would not be here. Hence there is the Huge Partnership History. Improving this is Possible, but requires Big Improvements in All Our Systems so that the Reach is Widespread and the IQ is Sound. Also there are Values issues here, which is Part of the IQ Challenge. The Importance of Leadership can't be overstated, so Some Females in the World face Great Challenges. In this Regard some of the Problems faced by Entire Communities is Unacceptable, Such as Food, Water and Home Supply. These things we Know how to solve. Thanks for the Report and Good Luck Leaders!.

  5. Plz, I was born by a woman, born with girls, married a woman , my children are girls but that one doesn't mean that we equal! If we are equal lets countries have national football teams men and women in one team, lets have men and women in one ring for boxing, lets have athletics without separating people by sex, lets attend military training without favours e.t.c. we love you, we support you & will continue supporting you.thnx

  6. Difference and equality are separate concepts!! So important.
    Any two random humans are almost definitely different.

    These amazing women have done so much for us, thank you.

  7. "difference and equality should not be confused" 🖤👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

  8. Why is a man, Justin Trudeau, speaking out about women's equality? And Melinda Gates? She and her disgusting husband need a taste of their own medicine! Literally!

  9. Don't need 2 see this. She just did the satanic triangle. No such thing as gender equality. There is however the jezebel spirit and a new tactic booting me offline.

  10. Women around the world should be slaves to corporations and not bother with family. Men are sick of taking care of nagging ungrateful women and children they have no rights to anyways.

  11. Who's leading the charge for gender equality? Not the Ar@b world, duh!

  12. Al Jazeera talking about gender equality. Really?!

  13. oh I see, so I should just accept my death gracefully for being a unbeliever of the left, like this video shows.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-QVPRJ9lZ-8   or maybe I should just agree with the stance of the left on the selling of nine year old children into marriage for sake of religious freedom.   https://legiscan.com/NJ/bill/A865/2018    I am sorry but to me your moral compass is broken and I will have nothing to do with this kind of degeneracy.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oKosd0xJadE   all because the people on the left think everything is ok as long as Hilleary likes it. real smart good look for the left, it is about morals, and the different types of morals, people can have.

  14. These women need to go to India and places with real equality issues. If you spout it out in Free Countries/1st world countries, it’s only going to get bashed.
    I really respect their effort, but the places that really need feminists are being avoided.

    And these people comments with harshness need to do their research. There really is an issue with gender equality.
    Research, India, Africa, Asia

  15. Does Justin have a cock? I didn’t think so……

  16. They’re actual racist. Violent, threats and racist than anyelse🤮🤮

  17. The jews WHO want to degenerate the social scructures of goys.

  18. The US is a warmongering lawless rogue state. Trump is a low life pathological liar and a little Adolf Hitler while Pence from the fascist Christian Right is a little Joseph Goebbels. Read Chris Hedges book, America the farewell tour and check out his, Joseph Stiglitz and Jeffrey Sachs videos on YouTube. Also read 'How Fascism Works' by Jason Stanley, 'Giants The Global Power Elite' by Peter Phillips and 'The Management of Savagery' by Max Blumenthal.

  21. Just went a week without Internet access . Boycott AT&T , direct TV , centurylink they are targeting disabled seniors and veterans . Lied to daily by scumbags . When you live in the country Internet is not an option when you are disabled

  22. Pushing gender equality is a cultural Marxist joke against the west. Watch any half hour documentary on the Frankfurt School, and you will completely understand all of the problems of western culture.
    Watch "The Architects of Western Decline – A Study on the Frankfurt School and Cultural Marxism" on YouTube

  23. LOL… Muslims talking about gender equality… Muslim countries are the worst offenders!!

  24. lol leading the charge for gender equality? illuminati. they're behind all these social cancer, BDSM, LGBTQWERTYGTHS, GAY, FEMINISM etc
    A women will never be equal to a man. We have GENDER ROLES. Men will die to save the women and children, so take your women pride, swallow it and show men some respect.

  25. Remember they are the evil twisted who always had children on their sick minds. Ask women sports about gender now. And female prisons letting men in on rape spree's and sexual assault You dumb asses.

  26. In many countries men have numerous disadvantages whereas women lack no rights that men have. Yes, true gender equality, please, not just female empowerment and privilege. In some countries women do need empowerment; that is where the deluded and privileged Western feminists should concentrate their efforts.

  27. The Sodoms and Gommorahs always come to frenzied and violent ends.

  28. Gender Equality or Identity Crisis you idiot. A man is a man is a man fool.

  29. Take a Close LOOK people –
    The Leaders – are Transgender / Decievers !!

  30. Make sure the men become empowered. Otherwise we may fail to achieve the gender objectives

  31. When women pee standing up….. Then there will be equality.
