Stop the Violence campaign chosen as one of the “Women Deliver 50"

WAGGGS "Stop the Violence - Speak out for girl's rights" campaign has been chosen as one of the “Women Deliver 50: the most inspiring ideas and solutions delivering for women.”

“The selection of the World Association’s campaign to stop violence against girls and young women in the Top 50 acknowledges the crucial role girls and young women play as leaders of change on such challenging issues as gender based violence and ultimately in determining just and equal societies. Only through empowering girls themselves can we overcome what sometimes seem like such intractable issues,” said Mary Mc Phail, Chief Executive of the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts.

The World Association’s campaign was nominated because of the impact that it has had on girls and women 145 countries around the world. Download the press release and visit www.stoptheviolencecampaign.com to find out more.
