If you could see what we see every day.
Hear the stories of the women we meet.
Feel what we feel.
You'd be making demands, too.
I want leaders to listen to women and girl survivors and take action.
I want to empower and protect adolescent girls for lifelong change.
I want to build on local solutions from women's rights actors.
I want to create safe spaces for women and girls where they can find comfort and heal.
I want to smash patriarchal attitudes which say women and girls deserve violence.
I want services for women and girls where and when they need them.
I want women and girls to be empowered with cash relief to make their own decisions.
I want funding to respond to violence against women and girls as soon as the crisis starts.
