Equality Now is an international legal advocacy organization that seeks to protect and promote women and girls’ rights around the world. Working with grassroots organisations, human rights organisations, and individual activists, Equality Now uses the law to promote gender equality. We do this by challenging laws that discriminate against or increase the vulnerability of women and girls and promoting laws that would protect their wellbeing. Through such legal and systemic change, we hope to realize a world in which women and girls live as equal citizens, free from violence, discrimination, and exploitation.
Equality Now’s work currently focuses on four programmatic areas: legal equality, ending sexual violence, ending harmful practices, and ending sex trafficking. We have offices in New York, London, Nairobi, and Beirut and a presence in India, China, and the Republic of Georgia. For more information about our programs, please visit www.equalitynow.org.
