Sexism is global. The fight against it should be too.
Sir Elton John and Jessie J are among more than 70 celebrities who have urged world leaders to tackle poverty by addressing gender inequality.
The pop stars joined U2 singer Bono, boxer Muhammad Ali and actress Charlize Theron in adding their voices to the call by the ONE Campaign ahead of International Women’s Day.
In an open letter to government, the campaigners said “poverty is sexist” and some 155 countries have laws which discriminate against women.
