No Ceilings highlights progress towards gender equality

No Ceilings: The Full Participation Project, an initiative from the Clinton Foundation, aims to highlight progress towards global gender equality using data.

To understand where we need to go, we need to know what we’ve achieved. The No Ceilings project will work with leading technology partners to create a comprehensive and accessible global review that will bring together and widely distribute the best data on the status of women and girls and their contributions to prosperity and security. Advocates, academics and leaders will be able to see the gains we’ve made, as well as the gaps that remain, and access and share this information across platforms in order to design reforms and drive real change.

The video below by Fathom Information Design is one piece of the launch, touching on education, salary, and mortality.
