The Visualize Gender Equality project was developed by Operation Fistula, a charity working to end obstetric fistula for every woman, everywhere. Women with fistula live in places where the burden of gender inequality is at its most extreme. Where the spectrum of injustices they face are most profound. We believe that if obstetric fistula is prevalent, so too is extreme gender inequality. Obstetric fistula is therefore a profoundly effective indicator of systemic failure.
Using Tableau and Exasol, the project will drive forward new data collaborations and spur collective impact, advocacy, and action to end gender inequality.
By visualizing data on the extreme inequities that plight women and girls, we can build a better picture of the system failures and vulnerabilities that perpetuate this injustice and implement more targeted interventions to end it.
This project will engage the online Tableau community and the Makeover Monday platform and user groups, in addition to working across social media to leverage further global engagement and collaboration."
