Imagine being told you can’t go to school. Being forced to marry someone three times your age. Not being able to make choices about your own body. It’s unacceptable, but this is what many women face today.

We’ve come a long way in the fight for women’s rights – but as you read this, women everywhere still face abuse and discrimination just because of their gender.

We live in a world where 1 in 3 women have suffered physical or sexual violence. In the worst cases, they may lose their lives to forced female genital mutilation (FGM) and ‘honour’ killings. 

It doesn’t have to be this way. Together we can end the discrimination of women and girls everywhere.

You can do one simple thing to stand up for women’s rights: become part of our movement of 7 million people fighting for equality and bringing about change.
