The Million Women Rise (MWR) Movement is made up of thousands of women who are united by outrage at the continued daily, hourly, minute-by-minute individual and institutionalised male violence enacted against women worldwide.
We believe that every woman and child has a right to live free from violence and that ongoing violence devastates not only the lives of the individuals directly affected but also the communities of which they are part. We want to highlight the continuation of all forms of violence against women, and demand that steps are taken to put an end to this.
Million Women Rise works in solidarity with international women's movements on a variety of campaigns and projects. We work to build and create links with and between grassroots and political activists, to create safe spaces for sharing information. we provide a platform for women to speak out globally.
Million Women Rise works with women as powerful change makers. We promote real change that is based on truth, peace, and love.
We believe that together we can create change.
