Society as a whole lose when violence are committed against women and girls.
Around the world, women are underrepresented in politics, decision-making and peace processes.
We work for sustainable peace, human security and equal participation of women in peace processes.
We believe a lack of economic empowerment is a major barrier to gender equality.
Despite the chaos the world was plunged in, however, the women’s movement achieved stellar results this year. Together with 151 partner organisations across 20 countries, we continued our efforts to ensure that women and girls are safe and heard. And that we don’t loose sight of our end goal: a peaceful and equal world for everyone.
In the year 2000, the groundbreaking resolution 1325 on Women, Peace and Security was adopted by the UN Security Council. A landmark victory for the women’s movement. 20 years down the road, the study “A Right Not A Gift” showcases women’s championship for building feminist peace, and identifies the potentials and shortcomings of the Women, Peace and Security agenda.
“We operate in more than 20 countries and are now working to adapt our support to local partner organisations. Our partners already carry out their work in areas affected by conflict and the virus makes their efforts even more difficult,” says Petra Tötterman Andorff, Kvinna till Kvinna’s secretary-general.
The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation is able to support women in conflict-affected areas through financial support from government agencies, institutions, foundations, organisations, companies and individual private donors.
