WOMEN OF CHANGE COIN — USA

This coin – featuring the first woman elected to Congress, Jeannette Rankin – will be the second of a global series of “Women of Change” coins to launch, on the eve of International Women’s Day. This physical coin made of pure silver, serves also as a representation of a digital wallet, for storing cryptocurrencies and other digital assets. Every coin sold will benefit women’s empowerment projects around the world.

sdg5 artist in residence kristin simmons

The SDG5 Global Alliance is thrilled to announce Kristin Simmons as our new Artist in Residence! Simmons' work is as acerbic, provocative, and as unapologetically clever as it is empathetic and vulnerable. Her visual creations inspire conversations around conflicting social expectations and realities; women’s equality being the inspiration of several new pieces to emerge in the coming weeks.

51% of the words visual artist are women, but only 5% of their work make up permanent collections. We want that to change.

I believe our goal should be to make this Decade Of Women the last one that is ever needed to achieve gender equity in all respects. We have a lot of work ahead, today is just the beginning.
