Over the summer, Women Thrive Alliance members launched a global campaign for gender equality, #AchieveSDG5.
We had a wonderful first #FeministFridays discussion of 2017! We were joined by international development organizations and Alliance members from India, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Pakistan, Syria, and DRC.
Our Alliance continues to grow! In the last month, we have added six new member organizations from around the world. The advocates and changemakers joining the Alliance come from Ethiopia, Liberia, Pakistan, Syria, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.
Our last #FeministFridays discussion of 2016 was a success! We were joined by Alliance members and friends from Burundi, Nigeria, DRC, Pakistan, India, Ghana, and the United States to discuss feminism and the private sector.
Deprived of my teenage years, I experienced the life of an adult woman through an early and forced marriage when I was in 5th grade; I was 13 years old. After suffering three pregnancies, two of which were stillborn, I realized that I had been infected with HIV/ AIDS because my husband was already infected. – Sabine
