International Women’s Day | ActionAid UK

On International Women’s Day, ActionAid is encouraging everyone to stand together, speak out and say #MyBodyIsMine.

One in three women worldwide will be beaten or sexually abused in their lifetime, most likely by someone they know. Beneath so much of this violence is a common cause: the idea that women and girl’s bodies are the property of men, for them to exploit and control.

This is wrong and it needs to stop. On #IWD2018 share #MyBodyIsMine to stand with survivors and shine a spotlight on violence against women and girls.


Show your support on social media this International Women’s Day. 

1. Write #MyBodyIsMine on your body.
2. Take a photo.
3. Post it on your social channels using the hashtags #MyBodyIsMine and #IWD2018, and say what this means to you. Don’t forget to tag us @ActionAidUK. 
4. Tag your friends and nominate them to post their own pictures too!
