Pledge to

Stand with women and girls.

How this will help

Fatuma, a Somali widow, used to walk nearly four miles every day to fetch water. After her daughters gave up their studies to help her, one of them was raped on her way to the water source.

Will you be a voice for Fatuma and others like her? Take a stand and sign the pledge for women and girls around the world.

Every day, millions of women and girls confront serious threats to their safety, their health, their livelihoods and their dignity. Yet given a chance, they have the strength to transform their families, their communities and our world.

Recently, the International Rescue Committee installed a pipeline to Fatuma’s village. Clean water now flows less than 300 feet from her doorstep.

When you sign the pledge, you spotlight the challenges that women and girls face, the potential they hold, and the simple solutions—like a pipeline—that help them survive and thrive.

Stand with women and girls - sign the pledge and spread the word!
