Our Business is Equality: Will You Play With Me?

Awen for Us Founder and Corporate Social Responsibility Project Consultant @dr.aylinlole asks in the June issue of Female Business:

Will you play with me?

Inequality is not just a problem for girls and women, it is a problem for men as well. Why do we say equality begins at home? Why is it our problem? As posed in one of the questions in @sdg4kids' @dunyaningelece "Future of the World" Game, "How is it possible for men and women to live equally and happily together?"
