Publications: Legal reform and institutional change to end gender-based violence against women and girls.

Globally around 81,000 women and girls are killed annually, and around 47,000 of them (58 percent) died at the hands of an intimate partner or a family member, which equals to a woman or girl being killed every 11 minutes in their home.
These crimes are preventable.

Here are our contributions to the field of addressing gender-based violence.

Support Global Rights for Women

Donate today

Every dollar donated to Global Rights for Women supports our work to end gender-based violence for women and girls everywhere.


We envision a world where women and girls live free from gender-based violence, attain equal rights, and reach their full potential as human beings. We do this by cultivating international and local partnerships that are committed to human rights, justice and equality, and advancing laws, values and practices that create communities where all women and girls live free from violence.

Our work will not be complete until survivors of violence are acknowledged and believed, perpetrators are held accountable, and communities no longer accept violence against women and girls.

Engage with the organization

Our local and international partners lead the initiative for change within their community, and bring Global Rights for Women in to help identify obstacles to justice and safety for survivors of violence.

Our work together improves law, policy and practice so that women in their community can achieve safety and equality, which has ripple effect around the world. This can be done through an array of customized trainings on bettering responses to violence against women and girls, as well as collaborations and partnerships with nongovernmental organizations, government and US Embassy contacts.
