As the international community celebrated International Women’s Week, the African Renaissance and Diaspora Network (ARDN) launched a global campaign at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on March 6th to give a Red Card to all forms of discrimination and violence against women and girls. ARDN partnered with eight United Nations Agencies, two UN member states, FIFA and 5 other entities committed to supporting the UN Sustainable Development goals.

In the game of football, a red card signifies a serious infraction of the rules. In this context, the ARDN Red Card Campaign seeks to agree from a minimum of one million individuals worldwide to sign on to a social media pledge do as much as they can to end discrimination and violence against women and girls. The target date for reaching this goal is the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The global launch brings together stars from the world of sport, artists, and leaders from government, international organizations, civil society, the private sector, and other stakeholders into one room to kick off the campaign in a globally televised and coordinated effort.
