Women are leaders

Women around the world are leading the charge in 2021. As crisis after crisis unfolded in 2020, women found themselves on the frontlines and stepped up to lead their communities through COVID-19, the climate crisis and economic recession, all while facing rising levels of gender-based violence. These are their stories.

Women make up 70% of those living in poverty and face injustices on a daily basis.

We're working with movements of women around the world to achieve:

1 Economic Justice for Women

We work in solidarity with women living in poverty and exclusion for just economic policies and a more equitable redistribution of resources.

2 Women's Rights in Emergencies

We are fighting for a world where women are resilient in the face of increasing humanitarian crises and leading preparedness, response and recovery efforts to secure their rights in emergencies.

3 Climate Justice for Women

We resource women to raise their voices for alternative policies and systems that promote resilience and climate justice, and reduce the worst impacts of climate change.

Together we've supported 500,000 women and their communities across 45 countries to achieve positive change and access to their human rights.
