We stand with you, @Katja_Iversen, @WomenDeliver. Thank you for your leadership, and the reminder to listen. #16DaysOfActivism #16Days

Women in Malawi are disproportionately impacted by sexual harassment and assault in the workplace. That’s why we are motivated to end gender-based violence in Malawi. #MakeWorkplacesSafer #16DaysOfActivism #16Days #HearMeToo

One in three Malawian women have experienced physical violence in their lifetimes and one in four have experienced sexual violence. We cannot remain silent; the time to act is now! #GBV #16DaysOfActivism #16days #HearMeToo 1/2

This! 👇🏿👇🏾👇🏽👇🏼👇🏻

Thank you for the incredible support we have received today and throughout the year! We are passionate about sexual and reproductive health and rights, and we love working with others who are, too. Together, we're making a real difference for real people. Happy #GivingTuesday!

Today is #GivingTuesday, a day to give back & to kick off the giving season. You can give the gift of safe, secure #reproductivehealth to women and girls around the world, and whatever amount you give, it will be doubled.

Sexual and gender-based violence undermines the health, dignity, security and autonomy of women and girls.
Yet #SGBV remains shrouded in a culture of silence.
📣 Speaking out
