Human rights are standards that are essential to the full development of individuals and communities. They allow all people to live with dignity, freedom, equality, justice and peace. Gender equality is such a basic human right. Many organizations are working day and night to solve the inequality between men and women.
While most countries recognize that equal rights should exist between men and women, this is often not the case. Many have produced regulations intended to fight discrimination and programs granting women access to health, education and economic rights such as land ownership. But these regulations don’t seem to solve the problem. We need compassionate organizations to fix the gap concerning gender equality.
The list is not exhaustive. Fortunately, many organizations are dedicated to improving human rights such as gender equality. We are putting a great emphasis on the fact that this list is incomplete. Please note that we recognize the important work done by any other organization that is not mentioned. Should you have in mind an organization that should be added to this list, please let us know via Twitter.
