Women are confronted by discrimination and inequality. They face violence, abuse, and unequal treatment at home, at work, and in their wider communities – and are denied opportunities to learn, earn, and lead. So Right Path promotes gender equality through awareness-raising and behaviour change communication i.e. avails information on how survivors can access justice through formal and informal mechanisms. We also establish community-based protection structures that work as referrals or information channels and provide women-only and men-only settings to discuss issues related to gender-based violence (GBV) and come up with solutions to reduce its occurrence pattern in their communities.
Gender-Based Violence has limited women’s capacity to work, causing them to suffer social isolation, loss of wages, and limited ability to care for themselves and their children.
Women form the majority of those living in poverty. They have fewer resources, less power, and less influence compared to men, and can experience further inequality because of their class, ethnicity, and age, as well as religious and other fundamentalism.
Gender inequality is a key driver of poverty and a fundamental denial of women’s rights.Read More
Why Women’s Rights
To tackle poverty, Right Path understands gender justice as the full equality and equity between women and men in all spheres of life, resulting in women jointly, and on an equal basis with men, defining and shaping the policies, structures, and decisions that affect their lives and society as a whole.
Right Path, believes that women taking control and taking collective action are the most important drivers of sustained improvements in women’s rights, and are a powerful force to end poverty not only for women and girls but for others too.
Putting women’s rights at the heart of all we do, whether we are responding to an emergency, working on long terms projects with communities, or campaigning for lasting change, we tackle the inequality and deep-rooted discrimination that makes and keeps women poor.
