#TakeYourSeat, challenge the stigma,
join the conversation  

In less than a week, the world will celebrate SheDecides Day on 2 March 2021, a globally recognised day of action to Stand Up and Speak Out in support of girls and women's rights over their bodies, their lives and their future.  

This year's theme, #TakeYourSeat, is a rallying call for women and girls to take up space and claim their seat at the table, to make their voices heard, and to use them to spark powerful conversations about topics that are silenced through stigma.  

So, what are you waiting for? It's time to #TakeYourSeat and take part! 

1. Join in the #TakeYourSeat Photo Challenge 

Use the power of social media to mobilise people across the globe to demand women and girls' seat at the table. 

Taking part is easy; all you have to do is:  

1. Take a photo of yourself sitting at a table  

2. Share the photo to your social channels with the campaign messaging in the #TakeYourSeat Toolkit and using the hashtags #TakeYourSeat #SheDecidesDay  

3. Nominate five friends, influencers or others in your network to take part by tagging them with the call to #TakeYourSeat on an issue 

Join Aminatou Sar and other SheDecides friends and allies who are taking part in the challenge and making their voices heard.

2. Spark a conversation with our #TakeYourSeat Card Game
