Focus on Movement Building
Women’s organisations challenge discrimination and improve women’s human rights. It was only after decades of campaigning by women’s organisations that rape in marriage become illegal in 1991. Without women’s organisations campaigning and lobbying, human rights for women in the UK would be far behind.
