Why Women?

Print E-mail

The why women? campaign asks you to support women's voluntary and community organisations. 

Many people have no idea what women's organisations do or why they are needed.  Yet without them, the world would be a much poorer place.

Women's organisations are not-for-profit groups that work specifically with women.  These organisations include women's refuges, training projects, campaigning groups, counselling services and much more.  Women's organisations provide free, and often life saving, services to women and lobby for better laws to promote equality for women.  But the women's sector is underthreat because it is not being supported with adequate funding.

This campaign affects everyone because stopping discrimination, inequality and violence against women benefits us all.  To be able to achieve this, we need strong women's organisations that can provide effective solutions to complex problems.

What can you do?

  • Show your support for women's organisations by signing-up in support of the campaign
  • Help women's organisations strengthen and thrive by becoming a volunteer or trustee
  • Do our two minute survey and help us strengthen the case for sustainable funding
  • Let others know about the why women? website
