Call for Artists:  Art Auction Fundraiser Global Rights for Women NOW

Global Rights for Women is hosting an art auction fundraiser as part of its virtual event Global Rights for Women NOW, a global gathering in solidarity to end violence against women.  Global Rights for Women NOW will be a dynamic 40-minute presentation featuring women’s human rights speakers, celebrity endorsements, music and art.  It will be a global celebration of women’s rights!

We are seeking women-identified artists who wish to donate all or part of their proceeds for items up for auction.  The art will be part of a silent auction held from September 18-October 2.  Proceeds from the final bids on the auctioned items will be divided between the artist 50% and Global Rights for Women 50%.

What your donation supports:  Violence against women and girls was an international human rights and health crisis long before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, violence is intensifying as women face long-term isolation and community and legal systems are not accessible to them.  Our work is needed more than ever.  Your donation will go directly towards changing these realities for the millions of women and girls who are survivors and at risk of violence in our community and worldwide.

Our Vision

Global Rights for Women is a leading voice in the global movement to end violence against women and girls. GRW builds international partnerships that advance laws, values, and practices to create communities where all women and girls live free from violence and threats of violence. In times of greater resistance to human rights from regressive forces, GRW makes an uncompromising commitment to the universal acceptance of women and girls’ human right to be free from violence.
