International Women's Day is a time to celebrate women’s contributions to the world and focus on the fight for equality.
Together, we have made great strides. Recent years have seen us gain hard-fought rights and increase the power of women. But the work is far from over - and we need you.
Especially against the backdrop of the war in Ukraine and the humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan, we must all rally together, raise our voices and take action to invest in women in fragile and conflict-affected areas - because they are the key to a peaceful future.
Each of us can make a difference. In big and small ways, we all have the #PowerToChange the world.

Support our Ukraine response
In just a few days, the lives of millions of Ukrainian people have been shattered by the Russian invasion. Nearly 3 million people have fled the war, most of them women and children. We are seeing women face racial discrimination and they are at risk of gender-based violence in this crisis.
Donate today to help women affected by this conflict - whether they be displaced women in Ukraine who are being discriminated against, or women fleeing alone and at risk of trafficking or abuse.
Today is International Women’s Day. It is 2022 and not a single country has achieved gender equality according to UN Women. Read what Women for Women International - UK's Managing Director, Sara Bowcutt, has to say on the matter.
Women have the #PowerToChange the world. We see it happen all the time. In the face of inequality and conflict, women make small, positive changes which in time have a lasting impact on their families, on their communities and on society as a whole. Meet Buki and Chro, two members of our global team who are using their power to create a ripple effect of change.
Between December 2021 and February 2022, we conducted phone surveys and interviews with our Stronger Women, Stronger Nations Programme participants and graduates across Afghanistan, as well as with Afghan women’s rights activists and organisations. In their own words, Afghan women share their hopes and fears. Read the report.
