In June 2013, a woman set herself on fire every three days in Herat, Afghanistan -- and that was an improvement from 2012, when the city's main hospital received a self-immolator every two days. The reason for women burning themselves alive, according to Afghanistan's presidential advisor on health affairs, is depression. Almost all self-immolation in Afghanistan follows marriage, with 70 percent of brides married against their will and half of them children 15 years or younger.

One of our favorite campaigns from last year: Deport the Statue used humor to tackle the serious issue of immigrant women's rights. 

Have you seen it? Tell us what you think!

In India, 1 woman is raped every 21 minutes, 1 woman is kidnapped every 14 minutes. Even though they make up 46% of the population in Delhi, women are considered and treated as a minority. #boardthebus aims to make the women acknowledge their rights and the responsibilities and exercise their power to make Delhi a safer place to live in. 

From the 1st to the 7th of March, we’re asking women to come together, board a bus to their destination and show Delhi and the world - through pictures, video, audio and text - that they are reclaiming the space on public transport that is rightfully theirs. We hope to encourage women to not only travel by bus, but also to share their experience and motivate others to join them.
