The world benefits when women bring their knowledge, issues and perspectives to the political and
policy arenas, to the peace negotiating table, to the largest and smallest organizations. You can
support the organizations that are making that possible.



The International Women’s Democracy Center trains women from Central Asia, Southern Africa, Northern Ireland and the Middle East to stand as candidates for election in their own countries. Click  here to see 15 ways you can give IWDC your support.


Vital Voices is a global partnership that trains women leaders in emerging nations to build democracies, strong economies and peace. Their work focuses on: expanding women's roles in politics and civil society; increasing women's successful entrepreneurship; fighting trafficking in women and girls and other human rights abuses. Graduates become part of a Global Network, an affiliation of women leaders across the globe linked through on-going dialogue, technical assistance and professional support. 


Calling the Circle is an exchange program between California and Uganda. Women leaders from both regions visit women leaders in the other, learning about each others’ lives and strategies. The exchange is a program of the Women’s Intercultural Network and the California Women’s Agenda.


Local Leadership: California Women’s Agenda is a state action alliance of over 500 organizations in California, working together to implement the Beijing Platform at the grassroots. CAWA links women and girls in collective action through real and "virtual" networks.

Global Leadership: The Global Business Women’s Network presents the Global Summit Of Women that is attended by women business owners and heads of state from all over the world. Their on-line resource, globewomen.com, can help you grow your business across borders. Their Corporate Women Directors International promotes the increase participation of women on corporate boards globally.


The Center for Women's Global Leadership develops and facilitates women's leadership for women's human rights and social justice worldwide. Founded in 1989 as a project of Douglass College at Rutgers, the center played a galvanizing role in the United Nations conference on human rights (Vienna, 1993) and in the 1995 UN conference in Beijing, by helping secure global policy commitments that "women's rights are human rights." CWGL programs include annual residential Women's Global Leadership Institutes on campus.
