Claiming Equal Citizenship Campaign
Women’s right to equal citizenship is guaranteed by the majority of Arab constitutions, as well as by international law. Yet across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region and the Gulf, women are denied their right to nationality – a crucial component of citizenship. Such laws send the message that women do not enjoy a direct relationship with the state, but must access their citizenship rights through mediation of a male family member, such as a father or a husband. Until women in the MENA and Gulf regions are recognized as full nationals and citizens, they cannot participate fully in public life, nor claim the other rights to which they are entitled as equal members of their societies. Please lend your support to the campaign. Send a message of solidarity to WLP campaign partners who are coordinating the national and regional campaigns to raise awareness of the issue, advocate for change, and mobilize support to modify discriminatory legislation.

Help End Violence Against Women and Girls: Sign the I-VAWA Petition!
It's estimated that 1 out of 3 women worldwide will be the victim of violence or abuse at some point in their lives. This must stop.
The International Violence Against Women Act (IVAWA), is a bill now before Congress that, if passed, would, for the first time, comprehensively incorporate these solutions into all U.S. foreign assistance programs - solutions such as promoting women's economic opportunity, addressing violence against girls in school, and working to change public attitudes - bring about transformational change. Please urge Congress to make the IVAWA a reality for the millions of women worldwide it would affect by signing the petition.
