We work to address three major issues that contribute to injustice for women around the world
ActionAid Australia represents a global movement of people working in solidarity for women’s economic justice, women’s climate justice, and women’s rights in emergencies.
These three priorities ensure the lived experience and leadership of women living in poverty and exclusion are at the heart of everything we do, as we fight for a world where all people live with dignity and freedom from all forms of oppression.
Explore our three key issue areas
Economic Justice for Women
The time for a feminist revolution of the global economy is now. Join us in standing behind women living in poverty and exclusion to fight for just economic policies and a more equitable distribution of resources and decision-making power.
Women are the most effective community leaders when disaster strikes, but are too often denied their rights and excluded from leadership positions in emergency response. We’re changing that by securing and promoting women-led humanitarian responses in communities facing conflict and disaster around the globe.
Climate change is among the biggest issues of our time, so we are working with women most affected to build resilience and adapt to climate change, while driving alternative policies and advocating for systems that mitigate and reduce its impacts.
