#WeCount

ADD YOUR VOICE.

 

The Global Count is a count of all women, non-binary, and transgender people from every country, culture and racial background around the globe. We must listen to women and gender-diverse people everywhere in the critical push for global gender equity. To ensure all voices are counted as we face the post-pandemic global reset. 

Insight and data about what women want is scarce. And where it does exist, it’s systematically and divisively neglected from policy and programme design. The Global Count is an online poll for women and gender-diverse people that has been designed to ensure intersectional voices and priorities are counted in policies and funding programmes. In short, the Global Count is our chance to use our collective voice to design our new world, the way we say it should be for the benefit of all of us.

For us to ensure maximum impact, we need to unite, raise our voices collectively, and spread the word. Can we count on you? 

It’s our world and our voice. Let’s make 2021 count. #WeCount.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is The Global Count?

Insight and data about what women want is scarce. And where it does exist, it’s systematically and divisively neglected from policy and programme design. The Global Count is an online poll for women and gender-diverse people that has been designed to ensure intersectional voices and priorities are counted in policies and funding programmes. In short, the Global Count is our chance to use our collective voice to design our new world, the way we say it should be for the benefit of all of us.

 

Why are you collecting this data?

There is an urgent need to better map critical issues facing women across the globe. As we enter 2021, by better understanding priorities defined by women in every region, the Global Count will set the foundation for women to define how global institutions should work towards gender equity. While we see women earning leadership positions in some countries, human rights authorities are declaring that gender-based violence and inequities in the workplace are as bad as they were 25 years ago. Not only that, but funding for initiatives to advance women’s equity is often ineffective. 

The results we gather from this pioneering global poll will put the spotlight on top priorities for governments and regional authorities, as well as act as an invaluable resource for development and women’s rights organisations to be one step ahead in activating around key issues.

Where will the data of this poll go?

All our data will be stored securely in an encrypted and private database only accessible by the Women’s March Global Privacy Officer. Our public data mapping will rank the issue areas in line with particular demographics such as country and ethnicity – meaning individual responses or personal identities will be undetectable. 

Answers to the open-ended question will be processed digitally to ensure anonymity, and keywords used most frequently will be mapped so that we can track the most often-used terms – and see which issues are flagged the most per locality for an innovative and more accommodating way to listen to such a wide sample of respondents, ensuring their own words are recorded, yet in a secure and anonymous way.

How are you making this an ethical data collection initiative?

We collect data in a way that puts those giving it in control. It won’t be the usual situation of collecting data from the public to benefit the receiver. Instead, the end goal is for this study to benefit the participants themselves, by you consensually and securely sharing what you want and need, and we then amplifying your voices as tools for change. There will be no commercial gain from this data – it is being collected solely to serve the participants who choose to give it.

Who are the partners involved?

At the core of this campaign is the coming together and collaboration of like-minded movements and networks. To ensure that this data is extensive and representative enough to inform future efforts to progress gender equality, this project is a joint effort between Women’s March Global as well as various ally movements, organisations, donors, and policy-makers striving to have more impact by responding to hyper-local-level data.

Our core partners are CIVICUS, Girl Up, Care, FRIDA, Impact Mapper, White Ribbon Alliance, and Global Fund For Women. Our core distribution partner is Facebook so that we can reach as many women as possible. We are also proud to have a far-reaching network of regional, national, supporting, and specialised strategic partners. Click here for our full list of Partners.

 

The Global Count x Facebook: Why this matters

Facebook is on board as a core distribution partner so that we can reach as many women as possible on their unmatched platform, and encourage participation and engagement from a wide and diverse sample. 

However, Facebook will have absolutely no access to the data. This will only be in the hands of the Women’s March Global central team – to then be converted into external reports for other partners and the wider public, where the respondents’ identity will be completely undetectable.
