Your Signature Delivered to the UN

ban

Global Fund for Women is excited to share that we delivered your signatures to the office of the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon.

Thousands of people like you signed our petition, demanding world leaders make ending sexual violence a top priority. Secretary-General Ban and his colleagues heard your demands. This month, during the Commission on the Status of Women, the Secretary-General said:

"A new movement involving millions of people is taking shape before our eyes: saying no to silence, no to stigma, no to sexual violence in conflict, and YES to equality and empowerment. I am with them 100 percent.”

Ban Ki-Moon wasn't the only one listening. Under pressure from people in India and around the world, the Indian government approved a tougher sex crime law.

We are at a global crossroads, and now is the time to support local women's organizations so they can continue to advocate for new laws and work with their governments to implement them.

 
 

DONATE. Support women all over the world. Give now.

Take action for rape survivors. Sign the petition.
