Women's Rights in the Modern Age

Staying informed and staying active

Getting Involved

While women's rights may be a cause that resonates in many's hearts, it is difficult to get involved. Fortunately, we're here to provide assistance. All around the world, women are fighting for their rights, and now, it's your turn.

What you can do

Locally to around the world, some simple changes to your lifestyle or a few minutes of your time can make a REAL difference. Visit our website- wominform.yolasite.com- to learn more.

In Sierra Leone- Pregnant girls are shamed and barred from finishing their education. Sign an Amnesty International petition- https://act.amnestyusa.org/ea-action/action?ea.client.id=1839&ea.campaign.id=44302&ea.tracking.id=MessagingCategory_WomensRights~Country_SierraLeone

In Pakistan and Afghanistan- Girls are barred an education based solely on sex. Visit malala.org to join a campaign.

In Nigeria- The Chibok schoolgirls have yet to be returned home. Keep them in your memories and continue to tweet about them so they are not forgotten to the world.

In America- Women are far too often the victims of domestic violence or poverty. Spare furniture? Donate it to a women's shelter. Extra clothing? Many women are grateful to have it. Your time is a valuable commodity, and many shelters have an active volunteering program.

In Syria- Women are brutally treated as thousands flee in response to a civil war and extremism. You can do big things, such as take in a refugee, or little ones, such as keeping an open mind. Sadly, Islamophobia is preventing many families from thriving in the land of the free. When faced with ignorance, try to take a minute and offer another opinion.
