Stand up for 
 women's rights

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.

How you
can help

We stand with brave women and girls around the world - and together we’ve achieved amazing things.

We’ve helped change a law in Morocco that allowed rapists to escape prosecution by marrying their victim if she was under 18. And we’ve helped ensure a brighter future for girls in countries like Burkina Faso by changing practices of early and forced marriage, and female genital mutilation (FGM). 

With your support we can continue winning the fight for equality everywhere.

Become part of a movement of over 7 million ordinary people from around the world standing up for human rights.

We research human rights abuses and expose them in the international media. We lobby governments and inspire people to campaign for change. Together, we've helped change hundreds of laws, secured the release of thousands of people who have been unjustly imprisoned, and protected the rights of millions of people.

Please stand with us with a monthly gift.
