Women's rights organisations and movements are vital to a just world where the rights of all women are respected, valued and realised. Our new report, Standing with the changemakers, highlights the roles of women’s rights organisations and movements in bringing about advances in women’s rights, and what the international community can do to support them.

We know that progressive change happens when diverse and independent women’s movements have vision, strength, resilience and collective power. Change is sustained when these women’s movements thrive and flourish over time. Time and again, movements have proven to be successful in bringing about meaningful change in women’s lives due to their ability to unite and mobilise large groups of women, and make their collective voice heard.
