August 2018 Update

Summer is over, although we’re still sweating! While the world went to the beach, AiW continued the fight for gender equality and women’s rights! There’s no holiday for human rights defenders and social change activists… at least not until we’ve achieved equality, right?!

So, we kept pretty busy. Here are the highlights:

In short, we felt the heat this summer! What can you expect for the fall? In short – more of EVERYTHING.

We’re energized and ready to bring back our Gender in Development and Humanitarian Assistance Certificate program, our Food 4 Thought speaking series, our actions – like the awesome student video competition - for the upcoming 16 Days of Activism to End Violence Against Women, and much more. Check out previous videos - Misplaced Guilt and Covering Up – to get an idea of what’s to come!

Keep up with us on Facebook and Twitter and get involved – or you risk missing out!

Happy September,
