AND SUPPORT
 SURVIVORS OF DOMESTIC
VIOLENCE!  

Domestic violence is on the rise and it's important to reach out for support.  

It is estimated that 35 % of women worldwide have experienced either physical and/or sexual intimate partner violence or sexual violence by a non-partner (not including sexual harassment) at some point in their lives. However, some national studies show that up to 70% of women have experienced physical and/or sexual violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime.

WE STAND UP
TO STOP THE
SEX TRAFFIC TRADE!

According to DoSomething.org: 

 

"Trafficking involves transporting someone into a situation of exploitation. This can include forced labor, marriage, prostitution, and organ removal. This kind of exploitation is known by a few different names -- “human trafficking,” “trafficking of persons,” and “modern slavery” are the ones accepted by the US Department of State. [1]

It’s estimated that internationally there are between 20 million and 40 million people in modern slavery today. Assessing the full scope of human trafficking is difficult because so cases so often go undetected, something the United Nations refers to as “the hidden figure of crime.”[2]

In 2018, over half (51.6%) of the criminal human trafficking cases active in the US were sex trafficking cases involving only children."

WE STAND UP
TO STOP 
THE FEMICIDE OF
WOMEN & GIRLS
IN LATIN AMERICA! 

In February 2020, Ingrid Escamilla Vargas, 25, was found skinned, dismembered, and disemboweled.

Fátima Cecilia Aldrighett Antón, age 7, was last seen alive leaving school on 11 February. Her corpse was found wrapped in a garbage bag, showing evidence of torture.

Sadly, Ingrid and Fatima’s deaths are just a symptom of an all-too-common occurrence—every day in Mexico, ten women are killed on the basis of gender. Fewer than five percent of those murders are ever solved and the justice system rarely presses charges.

TO PROTECT OUR SISTERS 
AT THE U.S. BORDER
FLEEING THE FEMICIDE!  
The stories are many, and yet all too similar. Undocumented women making their way into American border towns have been beaten for disobeying smugglers, impregnated by strangers, coerced into prostitution, shackled to beds and trees and — in at least a handful of cases — bound with duct tape, rope or handcuffs.

WE STAND UP
TO SUPPORT & DEFEND OUR
INDIGENOUS
SISTERS!
 

More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence, and more than 1 in 2 have experienced sexual violence by primarily non-Indians (96%) who are never brought to justice.  

Indigenous women have gone missing and are murdered at more than ten times the national U.S. average.

STUDENTS OF CHINA
FOR THEIR
EQUALITY &
HUMAN RIGHTS!  

Women and girls in the ongoing protest movement are up against a deeply unequal society.

Last August, thousands marched under the rallying cry #ProtestToo to support victims of sexual harassment and violence. These discussions could be lighting a tentative feminist flame, in a society that has shied away from confrontations with gender inequality.

WE STAND UP
WITH OUR 
AFGHAN SISTERS
FOR THEIR EQUALITY
AS CITIZENS OF
THEIR COUNTRY! 

On August 13, 2020, a courageous group of Afghan Women and individual activists sent a letter to the Leaders of the Taliban.   Here's an excerpt:  

"There are many customary practices that are in clear contradictions to Islamic values. Some of the more egregious are prohibiting and limiting girls’ education, women’s economic freedom, right to inheritance, the treatment of women and girls as commodities, resolving disputes by giving little girls and women as Baad. "

Baad is a method of settlement and compensation whereby a female from the criminal's family is given to the victim's family as a servant or a bride. 

"In Afghanistan, women continue to be the largest illiterate population. In addition, 80% of our girls are forced into marriage at a very young age, a tradition more common in areas under your influence."

FOR FAIR ELECTION RESULTS

The "Women in White" are standing up to dispute the obvious grab of power by their authoritarian corrupt President who claimed to win his re-election in a landslide of over 80%.  

The Los Angeles Times wrote:  

"Throughout the week, a crackdown by security forces on opposition demonstrators has escalated. Nearly 7,000 people have been detained, the Interior Ministry said Thursday. Viral videos showed shockingly violent beatings of protesters; reports trickled out of horrific jail conditions and torture of detainees."ie.

WE STAND UP
FOR OUR LGBTQ FAMILY FOR THEIR DIGNITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS !

This is a great place to add a tagline.

For LGBTQ survivors of sexual assault, their identities – and the discrimination they face surrounding those identities – often make them hesitant to seek help from police, hospitals, shelters or rape crisis centers, the very resources that are supposed to help them.

The National Coalition of Anti-Violence Projects (NCAVP) estimates that nearly one in ten LGBTQ survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV) has experienced sexual assault from those partners. Studies suggest that around half of transgender people and bisexual women will experience sexual violence at some point in their lifetimes.
