Equality Now FAQs

Why do you campaign for the rights of women and girls?  

Everyday, women and girls around the world face violence and discrimination. 1 in 3 women will experience physical or sexual violence in their lifetime, regardless of age, background or country, and every country in the world has laws that treat women and girls as second-class citizens. Sexual exploitation, violence, harmful cultural practices and systemic inequalities violate their human rights and prevent them from reaching their potential.

This kind of inequality is bad for everyone, not just for women: research shows that where women and girls are treated unfairly, there is more societal conflict and less economic stability. 

When societies treat women and girls fairly, there is less societal conflict and more economic stability.

What does Equality Now do? 

At Equality Now we use the power of the law to dismantle deep rooted discrimination and inequality and build a just world for women and girls. 

Since 1992, our international network of lawyers, activists and supporters have held governments responsible for ending legal inequality, sex trafficking, sexual violence & harmful practices, such as female genital mutilation (FGM) & child marriage.
