1 in 3 women will be raped or abused in her lifetime. That's one too many. She's not a statistic. She's someone's mother, daughter, wife
—one real person, just like you, who can create change. WAKE UP.
When given a chance to live free from violence and the resources she deserves, a woman galvanizes her community to grow safer and become stronger. Women and girls can be agents of change.
Each day, women and men are fighting together to boldly imagine a safer, more peaceful world. It is a world where women and girls live free of violence, were a girl can go to school, where a woman is empowered to choose who and when she will marry, and where gender is not an obstacle for a girl to reach her full potential.
Although this dream may not be realized overnight, these men and women push on. Watch and listen to what keeps them going, what was their wake up call. You can be part of this movement too!
