Women have the power to change and we see it happen all the time. In the face of equality and conflict, marginalized women in our programs rise up and take control of their lives.
This International Women’s Day (on March 8th) – and throughout March in honor of Women’s History Month – join us by pledging to use your #PowerToChange.
Against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, we call on the international community to invest in women in fragile and conflict-affected areas - because they are the key to a peaceful future.
Each of us can make a difference, in big and small ways. Only by listening to women and recognizing their enormous potential can we live up to our global responsibility to build a more peaceful and equal world.
The feeling of helplessness is understandable – yet within each of us there is a spark that can help light a flame of hope. With every positive action (big or small), with every kind word shared, we can make a difference.
Here are some ways you can:
Add your voice by signing our pledge and commit to using your power to change.
Join our events (listed below) to connect with a global community of change makers.
Take action every day of Women's History Month by downloading our calendar of action ideas and follow along each day of the campaign with @womenforwomen on social media.
Keep spreading awareness by sharing the stories of power women on our global team with your friends and family. Download our social media toolkit.
Together — mothers, daughters, sisters, friends — let's harness the power of women, for women.
