Equality Now has been working to end violence and discrimination against women and girls throughout the world. Since 1992 they have been on the forefront of key issues for women: Discrimination in Law, Sexual Violence, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Trafficking.
Equality Now is both deeply respectful of different cultural traditions but also recognizes that the right of women and girls to be free from violence is universal and should not be subject to religious or traditional norms.
