Women have been facing discrimination for centuries — let’s end this now. Our United Actions bundle the best performing charities supporting women’s rights around the world, so you can donate to several solutions at once.
For centuries, women have been facing educational, legislative, economic and social discrimination on a daily basis. The structural inequality women live with greatly affects their health, well-being and quality of life.
Gender inequality intersects with other factors such as social class, race, ethnicity, religion and age, making the lives of people who live in these intersections even harder.
Violence and discrimination against women ranges from discriminatory regulations and behaviours in public life, harassment on the street to gender-based-violence or femicide.
There are a plethora of solutions for women's empowerment. Providing women with direct cash transfers, for example, has proven to have a positive impact on their lives and the local economy.
Another important solution is to strengthen legal frameworks that promote women’s rights and to continuously improve laws, policies and judicial capacities to become more gender-equitable.
For women’s empowerment in the workplace, solutions include promoting professional development of women, supply chain and marketing practices that empower women, and using community initiatives.
Donate to this United Action to make your money as effective as possible. Our research team rigorously evaluates each charity, and curates collections of the top performing among them, so you can tackle the same urgent problem with different solutions.
Tyranny has a witness
Human Rights Watch investigates human rights abuses happening in all corners of the world. They protect the people most at risk, from vulnerable minorities to civilians in wartime. They direct their advocacy towards governments, armed groups and businesses, pushing them to change or enforce their laws, policies and practices. Women’s empowerment and gender equality is an important part of Human Rights Watch’s work.
Global Feminism in Solidarity and Action
The Circle is on a mission to economically empower women and girls, and end the pandemic of violence they face by funding and supporting frontline grassroots organisations in some of the world’s most vulnerable countries. They advocate for long-term structural change in the garment industry, and use their collective voices and those with lived experience to strive for change.
Because feminist activism works
Mama Cash supports women, girls and transgender and intersex people who stand up for their rights. They raise funds for activists fighting for women’s empowerment and support them with knowledge and networks.
A healthy life for all
Simavi strives for a world in which all women and girls are socially and economically empowered to pursue their rights to live a healthy life free from discrimination, coercion and violence. Their projects are focused around water, sanitation and hygiene and sexual reproductive health and rights.
Ending the Depression Epidemic in Africa
StrongMinds aims to rapidly scale a solution to the depression epidemic in Africa. By training community workers to deliver mental health services through group therapy sessions, they provide depression treatment to the most underserved populations in sub-Saharan Africa. StrongMinds uses a women-centered approach for their work.
Women survivors are not the problem, we are key to the solution
Fundación Ana Bella provides effective solutions involving women survivors, the media, public administrations, social entities, and companies so that they act as agents of social change against gender violence and generate systemic changes.
For change that matters.
Many of Solidaridad’s projects include a gender equality component. For example, in the cocoa sector they promote leadership roles for women, they participate in policy engagement that promotes projects geared towards gender equality, and promote the use of targeted interventions and projects that help to close the equality gap.
Empowering Africa's problem-solvers to create economically prosperous and self-reliant communities.
The Goblis Foundation is run by locals and works to empower talented young people from less privileged backgrounds. They help them become successful entrepreneurs and aim to create sustainable social solutions. Their women’s empowerment program provides young women with micro loans while also providing fiscal training.
Giving the next generation the chances they deserve.
Net4kids partners with local organisations and helps them receive funding and improve their projects. One of their projects aims to empower young women from Kathmandu who were formerly unhoused. They aim to give these women an opportunity to improve their self-confidence, self-awareness and develop team and life skills.
Real change is possible, and it comes from the power in people!
Women are central to ActionAid’s work and that is why one of their main themes is Women’s Rights. They support women to become economically independent, strengthen the leadership positions of women and are working hard towards ending gender-based violence.
