The fight to end violence against girls & women - despite its prevalence, violence and harassment against women and girls on public spaces remains a largely neglected issue, with few laws or policies in place to address it.

Our current project Billion Women Run for Safety - this is thousands of people uniting with one purpose, violence & harassment on public spaces limit women's mobility and their participation in society. It has to end!

 

Our Story

The creation of Billion Women came about as a result of research findings about lack of aid and support available for girls and women displaced by poverty homelessness and crisis and a largely neglected issue of women's safety on public spaces. Our focus is on elimination of discrimination against women and girls around the world.
