“I now know how to defend my rights for myself. I want my sons to learn that they should not make other people suffer by being violent.”
“I had lived with violence all my life since I was very little and I thought it was normal. I learned that if someone hits you or insults you it is not because they love you.”
“I’ve learnt firsthand that if you change women’s lives you’ll probably change children’s lives and men’s lives for the better too. The end result is a better, fairer world.”
There are countless innovative projects which harness the potential of new communication technologies to advance and protect women’s human rights.
Our policy team have been hard at work on a fantastic new Women’s Rights Advocacy Toolkit which will help women’s rights activists all over the world to campaign for change.
