Power To Change

Published on


We all have the #PowerToChange

When we use our power together, we can change everything

Over the last thirty years we have witnessed the incredible power of women every day. In the face of inequality and conflict, the women survivors of war we work with rise up and transform not only their own lives but their whole communities.​

They have the #PowerToChange, and so do you! The power to make a small but mighty difference lies within all of us. Invest in your own power, invest in women’s power, and together we can change the world.

Thirty years after Women for Women International’s inception, we have grown from one woman who started the organisation to serving over half a million women survivors of war around the globe.

Join us and use your power to create change for women everywhere.

Women who inspire us to use our #PowerToChange

Jihan from Iraq

"I would like for every woman to be free. And no one to be oppressed. No woman should be oppressed and feel that she doesn’t exist."

Cecilia from South Sudan

"I used my power to change my economic situation at home."

Fazila from Bosnia and Herzegovina

"I was aware that I had to convert my personal tragedy into energy that, first of all, my daughter needed, and then other women from my town could benefit from too."

There are hundreds of women waiting to enrol in our year-long training programme. Sign up today and give one woman the opportunity to transform her life. Photo: Serrah Galos

If you asked someone to name a famous woman from modern history, who do you think they would say? Here at Women for Women International, we want to celebrate the lesser known women who used their #PowerToChange history. Learn about the incredible impact of women you might not have heard of with our Women’s History Month blog.


This Women's History Month, get inspired by these female authors who are using their #PowerToChange to bring awareness to injustice, inequality and the incredible resilience of women.


Past #PowerToChange Events

On 30th March 2023 we were joined by CNN Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward as she discussed her book On All Fronts: The Education of a Journalist, a portrait of her experiences as a world-renowned conflict reporter. From Baghdad to Beijing, her courageous journalism has taken her to some of the world’s most dangerous places.

As part of #WomensHistoryMonth we held a virtual film screening of the BAFTA-winning and Oscar-nominated documentary For Sama, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.
