In response to the many challenges and threats facing civil society, democracy, and the planet, women and men marched, rallied, and gave speeches around the world on International Women’s Day. Demanding an end to inequality, violence, and environmental degradation, WLP’s partners were at the forefront of the mobilizations, amplifying local and regional campaigns for women’s rights.
During the 16 Days of Activism against GBV 2019, WLP Malaysia/AWAM conducted activities to raise awareness throughout the country, including a social media campaign, an online petition to advocate against rape, development of informational posters, and organization of a rally to demonstrate support for ending GBV.
In 2018, Amal Al-Jamani attended a workshop conducted by WLP’s partner in Jordan, Solidarity is Global Institute-Jordan (SIGI-J), and is now an emerging women’s rights leader in her community. In her own words, Amal described herself as shy and unsure of how she could contribute in a group of more experience activists.
