Women Crossing the Line

Support Woman Crossing the Line

Women from all walks of life are Crossing the Line every day to stand up for themselves, their families, their communities and the human rights of all people. They tackle violence, environmental degradation, corruption, stigma, and prejudice, all while fighting for their own rights with few resources and little recognition. When women speak up and organize with others for change, together, they push against the boundaries of sexism, racism, and inequality often at great risk for their own safety. Women Crossing the Line is a platform for bringing people together to amplify voices, visibility and impact.
