Women Thrive is located in Washington, D.C. We regularly hold events with our coalition partners, administration staff and decision-makers on Capitol Hill. Here you'll find information on some of our past events.
Grassroots women and girls were largely absent from the creation and implementation of the MDGs. While the development of the SDGs was a more inclusive process, gender equality and women’s rights groups still struggle to be included in decision-making on these goals.
Every day, grassroots women’s rights and gender equality advocates challenge harmful norms, traditions, laws, and policies.
Tools for Empowerment: Translating Improvements in Care into Opportunities for Women
For too long, women and girls’ voices have been excluded from global policymaking. Collective advocacy can change that.
Please join Women Thrive Worldwide and partner organizations from Nepal, Kenya, and Nigeria at their March 14 CSW parallel event. See below and attached for more information and to RSVP. Feel free to share the invitation with your networks.

In honor of International Women’s Day, Music Box Films will present a special private event featuring a screening of the critically acclaimed documentary, "She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry", followed by a panel discussion on women’s rights issues, past and present.
This panel will explore the recently published 2015 Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR). Respondents will engage in a critical analysis of the QDDR from a global development and humanitarian perspective. Respondents will discuss the best attributes of the new strategy combined with an honest discussion of its biggest challenges and missed opportunities.
