Gender equality

Different expectations societies have for men, women, girls and boys contribute to gender inequality, social exclusion, and repeated cycles of violence and conflict at all levels. 

Our work

Transforming gender norms is crucial for building peace, especially in places affected by conflict. When women and girls are free of discrimination and inequality, we also unlock their full potentials, fostering social cohesion and stability, ultimately paving the way for sustainable peace.

Saferworld challenges and transforms the gender norms that drive violent conflict and gender-based violence and supports the leadership of women and girls in building peace. This means both acting and thinking differently about integrating gender perspectives and equal participation at all levels to make peace possible.
