 AGAINST THE ODDS

Woman Watch

Good stuff happens. This is our tribute to women who go the distance, or step up, and deserve recognition. Some names will be familiar to you, others will not. Some are ‘still persisting’.

SO, THIS HAPPENED

Woman Watch

Seriously! Some things are just groan-worthy. We catalogue setbacks, slipups and snafus that impact negatively on the achievement of our goals, for a variety of reasons.

OUR WORK

AWE has worked for the past forty years towards the full participation of women and girls in all aspects of today’s world. There is still much work to be done.

REDRESS

30 years of research

Redress was first published in 1992, over 30 years ago to explore the challenges that exist to the full participation of women and girls in all facets of society.

‘Counting Dead Women’ shows that femicide is an epidemic and 10 women are hospitalised every DAY because of assault injuries perpetrated by a partner.
