Global women leaders are women who support and speak out on behalf of women everywhere. Take the resources you have and use them to improve the lives of others. Use your voice to lift up the needs of others. Make those around you aware of women and children’s issues. Lobby policy makers. Keep the pressure on for action. Fight for change wherever you find injustice.
As a global woman, be an activist, boldly speaking out for those with no voice, exposing harmful practices, calling governments to account for human rights violations, supporting actions that improve the conditions of women and children all over the world, transforming oppressive institutions, and building communities of peace.
Encourage other women to speak out and become global women activists. Out of conflict and struggle come global women like you who use their faith, courage, and hope to keep others moving forward. United with others in listening, learning, and leading, you can use your presence, power, and position to make a difference. Accept the call to become one of those global women who will shine with God’s light into a darkened world. Pray for all women everywhere who are making a difference.
