Happy International Women’s Day!
We honor women all around the world creating peace and demanding their rights, despite the obstacles they face.
Women like our partners, brave women in Iraq and Syria providing care and shelter to families fleeing extremist violence. Or like Indigenous women in Kenya harvesting rainwater through drought to ensure their families’ survival. Or like women in Nicaragua taking to the streets to demand an end to violence against women.
Join us in celebrating women today, and every day, doing the hard work to build the world of peace, justice and human rights we all deserve.
