We fund work to meet urgent needs in communities, enhance women's leadership and build strong local institutions.
We strengthen the skills of individuals and organizations to mobilize in communities, influence policies and sustain movements.
We mobilize our team of advocates and lawyers to train and accompany partners in shared campaigns for policy change.
The International Crimes Against Humanity Treaty
A new convention on crimes against humanity (CAH) is in its final draft stages, but most civil society groups — including women, LGBTIQ, disability, Indigenous, aboriginal, youth, caste, and racial and ethnic minority rights groups — have not weighed in. The CAH drafting process is moving quickly in the UN process, and now is a critical time to get involved.
Yifat Susskind, MADRE Executive Director, appeared on 112BK with Ashley Ford to address global women's rights, the rise of the right and how progressive activists can learn from each other to build stronger movements.
Solidarity with Women Human Rights Defenders
We need to do more to protect women human rights defenders and demand accountability. The next time you hear about women who are threatened or killed for asserting their basic rights, ask who benefits.
