Fighting for gender equality

We believe women and girls should have equal power and agency in decision-making at all levels. To help them attain this we'll be taking these actions:

A group of women standing in the street

Supporting women and girls to be safer, healthier, educated and independent.

Reducing incidents of gender-based violence, persecution based on sexuality and harmful practices.

Strengthening women-led movements that are pushing for social change and influencing policy.
