We campaign for legal and systemic change to address violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world.

Equality Now is a feminist organization using the law to protect and promote the human rights of all women and girls. We create, reform, challenge, and apply the law to establish enduring equality for women and girls everywhere.

Since 1992, our international network of lawyers, activists, and supporters has held governments responsible for ending: legal inequality, sexual exploitation, sexual violence, and harmful practices.

Our Theory of Change

We believe that legal equality is the first step towards gender equality. That’s why we use the power of the law to dismantle deep-rooted discrimination and inequality and build a just world for women and girls.

We work across three change pathways:

Legal

We facilitate legal and systemic change that addresses violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world.

Advocacy

We advocate for progressive laws, jurisprudence, and enabling environments that respect and advance the rights of women and girls.

Collaboration

We work in partnership with like-minded organizations, activists, thought leaders, artists, scholars, and businesses to increase our reach and impact through strategic collaboration and pooled expertise.
