Women will be Silent No More


It's not too late to help change the world.

70 years ago, world leaders committed to protecting human rights for all people.
70 years ago, we committed to achieving "the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family."
70 years ago, the world was changed forever.
As we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we honor individuals who have committed their lives to fighting for the rights we all deserve.
And we fight right alongside them.
Look no further than the women on behalf of whom we are mobilizing across the world today. Atena, Geraldine, Marielle, Pavitri, Awad, Nawal, Nonhle, Vitalina, Gulzar, and the Sengwer Indigenous people have paid with their freedom, their safety, and even their lives to advocate relentlessly for equal rights for all people.
Today, we join together with hundreds of thousands of others across the world to amplify the call for justice.

The call for human rights to come first.
Today, you can still mark 70 years of human rights by sending a tweet, writing a letter, and using our online tool to send emails directly to decision-makers.
We've been doing this for years because it works. Because of you.
