We Can Global Network is a wordwide social movement to change attitudes and behaviour to end all violence against women.
In 2004, the We Can Campaign was launched in South Asia with the objective of reducing the social acceptance of violence against women. We Can’s initial goal was to achieve a fundamental shift in social attitudes and beliefs that support and normalize violence against women across South Asia.
The campaign is based on the belief that women are of equal value to men. Violence against women, therefore, is a violation of basic human rights and thus there is a need to end all violence against women.
It introduced the concept of Change Makers – people who commit to help to achieve change to end violence against women. The campaign urges people to become Change Makers and effect change from a personal level.
Through the activities of allies and Change Makers, the campaign works to establish a grass roots shift in people’s thinking about violence against women.
Change Makers are people who are committed not to tolerate any form of violence against women, to speak out against this violence and to spread the work to help end violence against women. Become a Change Maker!
We are active in 15 countries with over 3 million Change Makers, we welcome you to visit our website and join the movement!
