“Anything men can do, we can too.”

Shernette Chin of Jamaica could not imagine how her life would be without her job, which provides food on the table for her kids. To Shernette, men and women are equal. “A woman can do the same thing as a man can do. If men do carpentry, women can do it.”

Watch Shernette explain how her job means a lot to her, and stay tuned for an overview video from the One Day on Earth project in English, Arabic, French and Spanish! The video captures snapshots of women beneficiaries around the world talking about what a difference having a job makes to their lives, families and communities. It’s time to #thinkEQUAL.
