Promoting women’s rights and gender justice

Upholding the rights of women and gender-diverse people continues to be an ongoing human rights priority for Amnesty International. It will be particularly important to increase gender justice during the recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. We will enable racialized, marginalized, and Indigenous women and gender-diverse people to live in safety and dignity, free from discrimination and violence.

Help us to root out the unequal power relationships that lead to gender-based discrimination and violence.

Ensure that women and girls have access to sexual and reproductive health information and services. And ensure that women human rights defenders can safely and freely carry out their work.
