Perhaps surprisingly, women perform 66 percent of the world's work (both paid and unpaid), yet only earn 10% of the world's income.
Wendy Diamond, Founder of Women's Entrepreneurship Day, joined Cheddar to discuss how her organization empowers women and girls globally to help alleviate poverty.
Goldie Hawn, Bobbi Brown, Sara Bareilles, and more will take the stage to at the United Nations Friday to talk about their entrepreneurship stories.
Diamond hopes this will inspire a network of women leaders, innovators, and entrepreneurs to initiate start-ups, drive economic expansion, and advance communities around the world.
Since this campaign launched in 2013 Women's Entrepreneurship Day has helped fund 500 Syrian refugee girls so they could attend high school and started a partnership with a local university to offer scholarships to the girls in Uruguay.
