Every March 8 for over 100 years, women worldwide have demonstrated for their rights.

Today, on International Women’s Day, the tradition continues. In communities from Bogotá to Baghdad, our sisters are celebrating their achievements and demanding equal rights.

Some of these women are thousands of miles away, and others are just down the street. Will you recommit yourself to stand shoulder to shoulder with them to demand change?

Please take part in honoring the achievements of our sisters by joining MADRE today. There's never been a better time to renew your commitment to women's human rights.
