Defending
Women's Rights

Enabling women to have access to healthcare and to exercise their right to vote is crucial in ensuring that women have control over their own bodies and their futures.

Empowering Women

More and more every day, we see a significant loss of Women’s Rights and Choice.

The loss of women’s rights and choice is a serious problem that has significant consequences for the well-being of women. When women are not able to exercise their rights and choices, it can lead to a lack of empowerment, a lack of representation, and a lack of social progress.

Women’s rights and choice refer to a range of issues, including reproductive rights, equal pay, access to healthcare, and freedom from discrimination and harassment. Attacking women’s rights undermine the functioning of democratic institutions and make it more difficult to address important social and political issues.

To combat the loss of women’s rights and choice, there are several steps that can be taken:

  • Promote equality and combat discrimination and promote diversity and inclusion in all areas of society.
  • Protect reproductive rights to ensure that women have access to comprehensive reproductive healthcare, including contraception, abortion, and maternal care.
  • Enforce equal pay to ensure that women are paid fairly for their work, and that there are legal protections in place to prevent discrimination in the workplace.
  • Support Women’s leadership and promote women’s representation in government and other leadership positions, and to support women’s leadership development programs.
  • Ensure women are empowered, informed and engaged to exercise their rights and choices, and that democratic institutions function in a way that is inclusive and representative that promotes equality and empowerment for all.
  • Support women’s freedom candidates and organizations in all levels of government.
