It’s the closing day of UN Women’s #GenerationEquality Forum. But our work is just beginning. We can bring about transformation toward gender justice if—and only if—we center the power, perspectives, and participation of women and girls, trans, gender non-binary and inters*x people who have been most affected by patriarchy and other intersecting forms of violence and oppression, and if we ensure intersectional feminist movements are equal partners in the global gender justice agenda.

When #women, #girls, #trans, #nonbinary and inters*x people in all of their #diversity, especially those most affected by #intersecting forms of #violence and #oppression, lead action for #gender #justice, it is more #transformative, sustainable, and responsive to root causes.

Today, Turkey officially withdraws from the #IstanbulConvention.

The attempt to withdraw from the Istanbul Convention is unconstitutional, unlawful & against international human rights norms.

Regression from the Istanbul Convention should be recognized as a regression from commitments to #equality, #democracy, and rule of law. We send solidarity to feminist & LGBTQI+ rights activists in Turkey. #United4IstanbulConvention http://united4istanbulconvention.com

Women, feminist, LGBTIQ, and trans-led organizations from around the world are coming together to jointly affirm and amplify feminist principles in relation to understanding gender, s*x, and s*xuality!

We believe gender equality will not be achieved without the realization of human rights for all trans, inters*x, and nonbinary people. Join us in committing to deepen our learning and understanding of intersectionality, feminism, and the rights of LGBTIQ and non-binary people, unlearning internalized patterns of s*xism, racism, and colonialism, and challenging unjust power structures and systems of oppression.

“Human rights are inherent to every person, regardless of gender, s*xual orientation, gender identity, gender expression & s*x characteristics. All individuals have the right to realize and exercise their inalienable rights and freedoms, and no individual or institution has the right to infringe upon the fundamental human rights of another. The realization of the human rights of any one group of persons does not come at the cost of the rights of any others.” Find the statement and sign-on at www.FeministAffirmation.org.

Together, we can ensure #feminist #activist voices are heard. Join us in calling on @UN_Women to ensure those most affected by gender injustice are the foremost participants in decision-making to realize gender justice.

Urgent Action Fund for Women’s Human Rights is a feminist fund that protects, strengthens and sustains women and transgender human rights defenders at critical moments.

We intervene quickly when activists are poised to make great gains or face serious threats to their lives and work. We use online, text and mobile funding applications to respond to requests from women’s human rights defenders within 72 hours and have funds on the ground within 1-7 days.

Urgent Action Fund builds the resilience of women’s rights and LGBT rights movements in three ways:


  • Rapid Response Grantmaking: We award rapid response grants to women and transgender human rights defenders in Asia, the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe, and North America. Activists apply for grants of up to $8,000 USD in any language on any day of the year and are guaranteed a response within 72 hours.
  • Nearby government services

    I wanted to donate to your organization after researching it on Charity Navigator and reading news articles. However I could not get past this screenshot that pops up again and again--and again--when trying to access your website (see screenshot in attached photo). I was unable to read about ANY of your programs or find the answers to any of my questions as a result of this pop-up blocking the way. It is annoying and obtrusive and eventually left me angry and disgusted. I did not want to "impact my inbox" or "sign up for email updates." I just wanted to read more about your organization and consider a donation. Too bad, this ill-conceived online tactic lost you a few hundred dollars' donation. Please reconsider this poor marketing gambit and eliminate this pop-up to avoid turning off the next potential donor that comes along.
