This month, two world leaders in gender equality will join forces to further support women's and girls’ health and rights. Together these two organizations will form one of the largest networks for women’s empowerment in the world. Following the US Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the right to an abortion in the US, it is imperative strong activists and advocacy groups come together than ever before.
“Women's March Global is honored to find a new home as part of the White Ribbon Alliance,” says Betsy Scolnik, former board chair of Women’s March Global. “Our organizations are deeply aligned in our beliefs and in the fight for women, girls and gender diverse people's equality.”
“We are both very excited to enter this new chapter of our work,” says Kristy Kade, CEO of White Ribbon Alliance. “We look forward to the day that every woman, girl, and gender-diverse person has the respect, equality, dignity, and autonomy they deserve.”
Women’s March Global began in 2017 when millions of women and allies around the world took to the streets to have their voices heard. The global movement is now a network with thousands of members around the world who continue to take action and advance women’s human rights.
White Ribbon Alliance and Women’s March Global will work closely with chapters and partners in the coming months to build a stronger community. A town hall meeting will also be taking place in the near future that will further amplify the incredible work this shared community will be doing.
