Soroptimist International

Soroptimist International is a worldwide service organisation for women. We are committed to a world where women and girls together achieve their individual and collective potential, realise aspirations and have an equal voice in creating strong, peaceful communities worldwide. Visit us online or on our UK website.




Women for Refugee Women

Women for Refugee Women challenges the injustices experienced by women who seek asylum in the UK. We work to empower women who have sought sanctuary in the UK to speak about their own experiences to the media and to policy makers at public events. We aim to give a voice to women who are all too often unheard and unseen.



The Royal College of Midwives

The RCM represents the interests of midwives in all four UK countries individually and collectively promoting excellence, innovation and leadership in the care of childbearing women, the newborn and their families, nationally and internationally. The RCM campaigns for better support for women who are pregnant in prison, or suffering domestic violence or female genital mutilation. We promote breastfeeding, the improvement of neonatal care and helping new parents feel confident and supported, so that women can enjoy not just a healthy pregnancy, but increased quality of family life and well-being.




UK Feminista

UK Feminista supports people to campaign for a world where women and men are equal.

Why? Because despite massive advances in the status of women, gender inequality remains rife in the UK and across the world.

We believe that political, economic and social equality between women and men is possible – and it is a world that will be better for all.But progress doesn’t just ‘happen’. It takes ordinary women and men to stand up and be counted and create the world they want to live in. Our aim is to inspire and enable people to do just that.


The Faith-based Regeneration Network UK

The Faith-based Regeneration Network UK (FbRN) is a leading multi faith network for community development, community regeneration and social action. FbRN brings together practitioners for sharing ideas and good practice, to encourage each other and to enable them to link with the makers of public policy. It acts as a means of communication between practitioners and those who make and implement public policy. Set up in 2002, FbRN reaches faith-based organisations operating in communities, and is a key partner for government, and voluntary and community organisations, at national policy level.


Women’s Resource Centre

There are thousands of women’s organisations across the country working to support women and to achieve equality. The Women's Resource Centre (WRC) works to bring women’s organisations together, strengthening women’s networks and forums where they exist and nurturing new contacts and links. 

We work to identify areas of common ground and shared visions, to break down isolation and fragmentation in the sector, and to encourage peer support and self empowerment.


The Women's Refugee Commission

The Women's Refugee Commission is an expert resource and advocacy organization that monitors the care and protection of refugee women and children.

We speak out on issues of concern to refugee and displaced women, children and adolescents, who have a critical perspective in bringing about change but often do not have access to governments and policy makers.

We also provide opportunities for refugee women and youth to speak for themselves through briefings, testimony, participation in field assessments and international conferences.


Positive Women

Positive Women is a charity set up to empower women and children in Africa, starting with Swaziland. Our work focuses on supporting local groups and communities to change their own lives and circumstances, to alleviate poverty and make significant social change. To achieve this, they must have their basic needs met, choices in their lives and an understanding of their rights. Through funding primary school places for HIV/AIDS orphans and other vulnerable children, creating women-led income generation projects and through our legal work, Positive Women is empowering the women of Swaziland to secure a different, better future.


The White Ribbon Alliance

The White Ribbon Alliance is an international coalition which pushes for change to make pregnancy and childbirth safe for women and newborns around the world. Since its launch in 1999, the White Ribbon Alliance — now a rapidly growing global movement with members in 148 countries — has been amplifying the voices of women and their communities, and is now a leader among those holding governments and institutions to account for the tragedy of maternal mortality.
