Our approach to SUPPORTing gender equality

Preventing violence against women

Sexual, physical, and intimate partner violence is a critical issue across the globe. We support activists developing innovative ways to prevent violence and support women in need.

Enabling economic well-being

Women and girls in the workforce are paid less, treated worse, and afforded fewer opportunities for growth. We help activists fight for gender-equal labor rights to achieve economic independence.

Enshrining women’s rights in law

Regressive, patriarchal societies still refuse to recognize gender equality under the law. We give activists the tools they need to fight for women’s rights through legal action and legislation.

Providing access to healthcare

Women’s sexual and reproductive decisions shouldn’t be made for them. We help activists share vital information, deliver life-saving aid, and empower women to take control over their own bodies.

SUCCESS STORY
