For International Women’s Day, the Clinton Foundation and Gates Foundation launched a new project for International Women’s Day yesterday. The website for “No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project” offers a trove of hard data and storytelling about global gender equality issues. The data viz elements are particularly interesting.
Regular readers know that this is not Hillary Clinton’s first foray into data gathering for development. She is one of the founders of Data2X, a collaboration (that includes the United Nations Foundation) to improve the quality of data collected about women and girls in the developing world. Check out a recent Global Dispatches Podcast episode: What We Don’t Know about What We Don’t Know About International Development to learn more about the problem of bad data and why focusing on women and girls is one way to solve it.
