Your support has never been more powerful
This last year has been an extraordinary moment for women’s rights. A wave of activism propelled issues of violence and harassment on to the world stage. These issues are not new, but the global spotlight is.
Part of IWDA’s role is ensuring this spotlight does not fade while gender inequality persists.
For more than 30 years, we have been part of a movement of women advocating for change in their communities, countries and across the world. Our partnerships with women’s organisations in Asia and the Pacific have placed us in a unique position to join and amplify women’s voices on the issues that affect us most.
We remain grateful to you, our supporters and partners, for standing with us over the past year.
With your support, we continued to stand up for women by tackling issues of power, money and security.
