EMPOWERING WOMEN IN SOCIETY

When women succeed, we all succeed. By amplifying the call for gender equality in political participation, peace-building and security, and business, you are investing in the strength of your community. That’s because when women are given fair access to opportunities, their families, communities, and countries grow with them.

Together, let’s stand up for women’s rights. Throughout Africa4Her, you’ll learn more about the unique challenges facing women across sub-Saharan Africa and how we can all advocate for women’s rights in our communities! 

Strong women make for a strong future for all of us. Use the resources below to join Africa4Her and make a stand for women today.
