Since 2012, we have collaborated with the Nobel Women’s Initiative and other regional and local partners to hear first-hand from indigenous and rural women leading the defense of land and territory against corrupt mining and extractive projects. Learn more here.

From March 12-23, hundreds of NGOs, activists, and representatives of UN Member States and entities will gather in New York for the 62nd session of the Commission on the Status of Women. This year, the priority theme of the session is rural women and girls - the challenges they face, opportunities for the advancement of their rights, and their contributions to achievements in gender equality.

Today, and throughout March, join us as we celebrate the theme #PressForProgress by spotlighting women who have dedicated their lives to fighting for equality, justice, and peace. We will share stories, resources, and interviews from activists representing diverse movements around the world.
