WLP participates in a wide range of advocacy and networking activities to raise awareness about women’s human rights issues, influence policy makers and public opinion, and increase the visibility and impact of our work on gender equality. Our grassroots-driven advocacy campaigns are based on our domestic country analyses, and capitalize on our international visibility. We connect activists to networks and movements through our international conferences, and to policy makers, media, and the public through special events. WLP participates in international and regional forums where we share our campaigns and advocacy strategies with activists, journalists, academics, and others. And we engage in education and advocacy at the local level to mobilize communities directly.
The WLP partners are engaged in a number of local, regional, and international campaigns that are addressing the policy, legal, educational, social, and economic inequities that women face. WLP is mobilizing around civil rights for women, coordinating advocacy campaigns for women’s citizenship, nationality rights, and inheritance rights. We are combatting VAW through our campaigns to end honor crimes, marital rape, and child marriage, and through reforming family law.
