Stop street harassment and violence against women: become an ActionAid campaigner

We campaign across the world to make cities safer for women, and to tackle the root causes of poverty and inequality. We pick the issues that we know will make a difference for the world’s poorest people, and we don’t give up.

We couldn’t do this without our global network of campaigners putting pressure on governments, building solidarity, and helping us call out the people in power.

You can be part of this – sign up as a campaigner now to get started.
