In recent years, the focus of volunteer organizations has been shifted to appeal better to young volunteers. According to the United Nation’s Youth and Volunteering report, young people (between the ages of 15-24) devote $35 billion annually in volunteer hours.

In December 2015, dialogue about gender equality in the United States was reignited on the Internet, with differing opinions published online, in print and expressed in the comment section of forums, magazines and blogs. This came after the United Nations sent three human rights experts to the United States to examine the country’s treatment of women and commitment to gender equality. Their findings prompted concern about gender equality in the U.S. but it also renewed the debate about gender equality worldwide.
