Fearless women and girls: leading the way, transforming lives

Violence, or the threat of it, is a daily reality for millions of women and girls, making it one of the most widespread and insidious human rights abuses. Despite decades of hard-fought campaigning by feminist and women’s rights organisations around the world and numerous instruments to eliminate violence against women and girls (VAWG), levels of violence have remained unacceptably high.

The SDGs provide the international community with a critical opportunity to take this important agenda forward over the next 15 years. ActionAid is standing with fearless women and girls speaking out against violence. But violence will only stop when we all – governments, donors, international organisations, corporate actors, civil society organisations, women and men – speak out against it. Join us to demand change and eliminate all forms of VAWG.
