#MessageToMySister

This International Women's Day, we asked you to send a #MessageToMySister – just a few simple words to express your solidarity and support for women living in some of the world’s most dangerous places.

International Women's Day 2018

Thank you for standing in solidarity with women survivors of war

We know how powerful it is for a woman survivor of war to hear the words: you are not alone, that's why we organised a very special delivery to conflict-affected communities where we work around the world, reaching hundreds of women isolated by violence and insecurity.

Your personal message will be delivered directly to the women in our programme, telling her you’re standing alongside her.

Your words will show her that she’s got an ally she’s never met, on the other side of the world – someone who shares her hopes and believes in her abilities: to rebuild her life, return to her home, give her children a brighter future.

Send a message

My message on International Women's Day:

By signing up you will receive email updates about how your support is helping to change the lives of women affected by conflict, as well as general news about Women for Women International’s work, appeals and ways to get involved.

If you have not indicated that you consent to further updates from Women for Women International, your details will be retained for the duration of the campaign then deleted, so you will not be contacted again.

My message on International Women's Day:

If you are born a woman, you are already born with a disadvantage. However, that should only motivate you to fight for what you deserve and for better conditions for future generations. Be strong, we are rooting for you!

A wise man once said that women are far supirior then men. Why? Because if we give you a house, you'll give us a home. We give you the seed, you give us a child. He also said to not give you shit. If we do, you'll give us a load of it! ❤️
