Change doesn’t just happen. We collectively make it happen.
AWID strongly believes in building collective power to advance women’s rights and gender equality worldwide. Only if we strengthen the voice, impact and influence of women’s rights advocates, organizations and movements, will we see a world where women rights are respected, poverty is eradicated and peace endures.
As an individual or organization committed to advancing the rights of women in your homes, schools, communities and societies, you are an agent of change in one of the most successful social revolutions the world has ever seen. But we all know there is still a long way to go.
Together with AWID, you can work to ensure that women’s rights advocates, organizations and movements continue to drive political, social and economic change to ensure rights for women and for all.
