The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected. It has been translated into 500 languages and is the most translated document in the world. Women are entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of all of their human rights and to be free from all forms of discrimination. #Soroptimists Globally have human rights at the top of their agenda. #16daysofactivism. #Orangetheworld #Generationequality

As more women find space at the work place, and make positive progress towards leadership roles, they are faced with challenges. Women are targeted for their gender and for progressive roles they have adopted. Female employees suffer harassment. Laws of Prevention of Harassment at work place are in place but more needs to be done. #Soroptimists call for an end to violence against women NOW!

#Soroptimists will not tolerate sexual exploitation. We call for no tolerance to such violations of human dignity. Sexual exploitation is exploitation of a woman /girl and her body, and child sexual exploitation that leads to child prostitution. Such activity engrains stereotypes and often leads to harmful discrimination. Raise your voice against such exploitation. Join our movement and stand up for women and girls sigbi.org.  #Orangetheworld, at #Generationequality.

16 Days of Activism – 07 December – Discrimination Against Women in Rural Communities Day

16 Days of Activism – 07 December – Discrimination Against Women in Rural Communities Day

in

Today we rise for the hard toil and struggle of women in rural communities who compose almost 50% of the agricultural work force. This unpaid labour is coupled with their responsibilities to their homes. Gender-based discrimination and the suffering from the impact of climate change and disasters affect them disproportionately. Soroptimists call for equity and equality for rural women. #Orangetheworld, at #Generationequality.
