Equality Now

Founded in 1992, Equality Now is an international human rights organization that works to protect and promote the rights of women and girls around the themes of Discrimination in Law, Sexual Violence, Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) and Trafficking. Equality Now works in collaboration with local organisations providing technical and financial support and takes strategic litigation cases to support international, regional and national legal advocacy to uphold women’s rights. The Africa regional office in Nairobi was opened in 2000 to further develop the Africa Programme and to support the women’s right movement in Africa.
