Champions for Equality

I wanted to bring awareness to a Global Fund for Women, which was founded in 1987 by four women: Anne Firth Murray, Frances Kissling, Laura Lederer, and Nita Barrow. The women who knew the importance of women’s human rights to bring social, political, and economical change. There vision is “Every woman and girl is strong, safe, powerful, and heard. No exceptions.” They managed to find wealthy individuals to fund their various projects that empower women, later becoming a public foundation that has helped bring great changes to women in all over the world. The website highlights past CEO and members on their page, last statement is about that although times have changed, their mission is still the same, “trust women.”

The website is easily navigated and can be visited at : https://www.globalfundforwomen.org/about/mission-history/#.WQUFurglGUk

The foundation’s logo is “Champions for Change”

They are active on all popular social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Instagram.

I think it is important to stay an active member of our society. Social movements are a condition of life’s various inequalities. Social change doesn’t come with a click of a button, however, it comes by going out and doing more than donating. Going and participating by joining organizations and causes that you are passionate about. Donating is just one of the ways someone can help bring change into this world with just one click!

The Global Fund for Women gives out grants to women-led groups based outside of U.S. The Grant-making page can be visited here for more information.
