COME TOGETHER, ACT TOGETHER
Never before have small, individual actions been so powerful. Let’s join forces to fight for gender justice around the world.
WOMEN SUFFER MORE IN A GLOBAL CRISIS
Existing unequal and unfair work situations become more so, while unpaid caregiving work done by women increases. Domestic violence surges as tensions rise, and women are confined round the clock with their oppressor.
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE IS SYSTEMIC
Domestic violence is rooted in gender inequality – as long as women are seen to be inferior, they will be susceptible to all forms of violence. We need to challenge this perception at every opportunity, and make sure that women are equally represented in positions of power and influence.
HOMELESS FROM A VIOLENT HOME
Violence and female homelessness are closely linked, with victims of domestic violence forced into precarious living circumstances when our system(s) fails to protect them. Women who are already experiencing homelessness are also at far greater risk of physical or sexual violence than their male counterparts.
