Women's rights

Despite great strides made by the international women’s rights movement over many years, women and girls around the world are still married as children or trafficked into forced labor and sex slavery. They are refused access to education and political participation, and some are trapped in conflicts where rape is perpetrated as a weapon of war. Around the world, deaths related to pregnancy and childbirth are needlessly high, and women are prevented from making deeply personal choices in their private lives. Woman of Purpose is working toward the realization of women’s empowerment and gender equality—protecting the rights and improving the lives of women and girls on the ground.

Violence against women and girls is one of the world's most widespread human right violations. It cuts across the boundaries of age, race, culture, wealth and geography. And it happens everywhere: at home and at work, on the streets and in schools, during times of peace and conflict. Up to 70 percent of women and girls will be beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in their lifetime.

Violence against women is a human rights and public health emergency.With sufficient political will, funding, and carefully developed and targeted programmes, violence against women can be significantly reduced.

WOP has been a major source of protection for woman on every subject important to women from gender equality, to reproductive rights.

None of us can change the world by ourselves, but lots of people doing a little can make a real difference.
