Women’s Rights & Gender Equality in focus on TheGuardian.com

The in-focus section features the pressing issues affecting women, girls and transgender people around the world, and shines a spotlight on the critical work being carried out by women's rights movements. 


AWID and Mama Cash are advisory partners who offer ideas to the Guardian editorial team and help link the Guardian team with diverse women’s rights advocates, organizations and movements around the world.

With the Guardian’s global reach of over 82 million unique browsers a month and its position of influence with policy makers, AWID and Mama Cash see this partnership as an important opportunity to:

  • bring a rights based analysis to a broad and powerful audience
  • increase the visibility of diverse women’s rights organizing and make the case for the key role they play in advancing women’s rights
  • raise the visibility of women human rights defenders at risk
  • influence key global development policy processes and debates and support more diverse voices to frame debates and set priorities about women’s, girls and transgender people’s rights and the changes that are needed at global, regional and national levels.
