Women's lives are being threatened. Women's rights are being ignored. Take action now & tell Obama: rape survivors globally have the right to healthcare. With the stroke of a pen, President Obama can clarify that U.S.-funded health clinics around the world can provide safe abortions to women who've been raped, who are survivors of incest, or whose lives would be threatened by carrying the pregnancy to term. 

It's #TimeToAct. Sign & share the petition to #breakbarriers for women & girls.
The Global Fund for Women is a nonprofit grantmaking foundation that advances women's human rights worldwide. We raise funds from a variety of sources and make grants to women-led organizations that promote the economic security, health, safety, education and leadership of women and girls.

Amazing Nigerian artist Sokari Douglas Camp chose "Red" as her theme as our latest guest curator for Curating Change:

"Red makes me think of blood. Blood pumps through our hearts, and fuels the love women invest in their communities and families. Blood seeps out our wounds, created through centuries of violence against women’s bodies and spirits." 

Explore her selections and insights on Red, and tell us what you think.

#BringBackOurGirls

It has been three weeks today since 276 girls were kidnapped from their school in northeastern Nigeria by terrorist group Boko Haram. Over 200 girls remain missing. 

Raise your voice with #BringBackOurGirls to stand with the fathers, mothers, sisters, and brothers, everyone in Chibok and Nigeria, marching after three weeks of mourning, searching, fears, heartbreak, questions, horrific rumors of forced marriages and sexual violence - all met with government silence.

Join them in demanding action and answers. Join them in demanding all of these girls are brought home safe and soon. As an international community, we must do more.

Follow us on Twitter to stay updated on latest news out of #Nigeria: twitter.com/globalfundwomen
The Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapped hundreds of female students in Nigeria this month. The abductees’ fate remains unknown.

Kafa receives more than 2,600 calls to its domestic abuse hotline each year. A local NGO in Lebanon and one of our grantee partners, Kafa - which means "enough" in Arabic - drafted Lebanon's first-ever domestic violence bill in 2007. After pending in parliament for years and much critical language from Kafa's original draft removed or changed, the Lebanese parliament passed a bill last week on April 1st to protect women and families from domestic violence. 

While this is a landmark step for Lebanon, Kafa and other human rights organizations remain focused on a number of critical omissions in the bill, particularly the failure to criminalize marital rape.

"This is a very big setback," said Kafa's co-founder Ghada Jabbour in The Guardian.
Long-awaited bill originally drafted to protect women from violence has, bizarrely, endorsed a 'marital right to intercourse'
