me too. International Partners With Global Fund for Women to Address Sexual Violence Around the World

This partnership expands both organization’s efforts to put an end to sexual & gender-based violence in the global south. 

NATIONWIDE — Today, Thursday, October 21, me too. International and Global Fund for Women are announcing a joint partnership to support local organizations in the global south working in their own communities to eradicate sexual & gender-based violence (SGBV). The announcement comes as part of ‘me too.’s fourth anniversary week of celebration, and will be discussed via a panel event  featuring leaders of both organizations and international partners, highlighting the unique calls to action within the global movement to disrupt rape culture. 

Although #MeToo has become a viral phrase, there is a substantial funding gap for feminist organizations doing this work. 

While the harm and pervasiveness of sexual violence is global, so too is the resistance. As the ‘me too.’ movement has grown, many countries have asked to connect with efforts in the U.S. Their requests have sparked the vision of a global community that centers survivor leadership through deep cross-country relationship building and practice sharing..

me too. Global in Context is a public event that will be hosted on Zoom and broadcasted live on Facebook.

WHEN: Thursday, October 21 6-7pm EST. 

HOW: Register here and watch on Facebook.

“While we know that the harm and pervasiveness of sexual violence is global, we are heartened to see that so too is the resistance. The movement to disrupt rape culture and end sexual violence is happening across borders, fueled by brilliant practitioners committed to survivor justice in their communities and it is grounded in our collective vision of a future free from harm, abundant in joy, and grounded in healing in action”, Dani Ayers, CEO of me too. International. 

“Western feminists have a way of dominating the global discourse so it’s important to note that feminists around the globe have been organizing around sexual and gender-based violence. Yet they are often doing so without the benefit of connection and solidarity, and on a shoestring budget. What wins could be unlocked if organizers could more easily share learnings, resources, and information with each other, and access better resources to sustain this work?” Lori Adelman, Vice President of Influence and Engagement for Global Fund for Women.
