The Women in Public Service Project’s “50 x 50” initiative has a new tool to help chart a course toward its goal of gender equality in decision-making positions in public service by 2050. A growing data base on global women’s leadership can now be accessed at data.50x50movement.org. The Wilson Center's John Milewski asked WPSP director Gwen K. Young to tell us what crunching the numbers can mean to achieving the ultimate goal. That’s the focus of this edition of Wilson Center NOW.
