WIA Gender Equality Commission focuses on fighting against Women´s rights violations in developing countries. Violence, rape, FGM, stoning, lack of freedom, discrimination, children marriage

Working areas

  • Selecting best practices from Governments, NGOs, schools and other groups
  • Advocating for best practices implementation
  • Working on international awareness and communication campaigns targeting decision makers and men, especially in the countries where there are more women´s rights violations perpetrated. Leveraging celebrities (also male), sports events, digital influencers, business leaders and using role models with results oriented campaigns

WIA is extremely concerned about the human rights violations that women suffer every single day all over the world. We stand with all women, we will always fight to support and defend women’s rights and will work to help create a more equal, safer, fairer and better world.

A problem with the current movement:

  1. Lack of leadership and vision
  2. Lack of concrete solutions and ideas
  3. Lack of accountability
  4. Lack of corporate – public and social collaboration
  5. Lack of a pragmatic approach
  6. Not usage of the available movements, resources and efforts
  7. No clear call to action to relevant decision makers and stakeholders involved in the current situation
  8. Lack of comprehensive vision of the overall problem
  9. Lack of ambition in the fight against the problem from a holistic perspective
  10. Arguments about feminism, superiority, equality and other concepts that miss the point of Women’s rights, that is agreed by everyone
  11. Not involvement and targeting to men, specially to men that tolerate these abuses, mostly a discussion where women talk about women’s rights with other women

Partnerships and advocacy

  1. International Organizations
  2. Schools to deliver messages and actions to boys and girls
  3. Universities to reach youth globally
