alianza por la solidaridad mujeres palestinas 8 de marzo

Access to and control over economic resources, job opportunities and shared responsibility with men helps foster women's autonomy and decision making capabilities.

Women's rights

In Alianza por la Solidaridad, we think the full enjoyment of rights by women is a matter of democracy and justice. We also believe that the development of both the individual and society as a whole is only possible if there is equality between men and women. For this reason, we invest our knowledge, experience and creativity into defending and advancing the rights of women.

Our lines of work

Human rights start with our bodies

The right to decide about our own bodies, our sexuality and our reproduction is one of the most fundamental human rights, but far from guaranteed to all women:

• 800 women die every day from preventable causes during pregnancy and childbirth.

• 47,000 women die annually from unsafe abortions, the vast majority in countries where access to safe and legal abortions is punishable by law.

Inequality and discrimination limit the control and decision-making capacity that women have over their own bodies. Women and girls are the ones who suffer most from sexual and reproductive health problems and whose sexual and reproductive rights are violated most often.

We work to enable women to make their own decisions about their bodies without discrimination, threats, or violence.

A life free of violence for all

The multiple forms of violence against women and girls constitute one of the most flagrant violations of human rights. Worldwide:

  • 1 in 3 women have experienced physical or sexual assaults throughout their life
  • Gender violence is one of the leading causes of death among women aged 15 to 44 years, ahead of the sum of deaths from cancer, malaria, traffic accidents and war.

Violence threatens women's lives and has a huge impact on their physical and psychological integrity, autonomy, and freedom of movement.

It also limits their ability to participate fully in society and has a huge personal, social, and economic cost.

We work so that all women can live a life free of violence.

A fairer and more inclusive economy

The full realization of economic rights of women is key to achieving equality between men and women, reducing poverty, and ensuring fair, equitable, and sustainable development. However:

  • 70% of people living in extreme poverty worldwide are women
  • Women perform 66% of the work in the world, producing 50% of food, but only receive 10% of the income and own 1% of the property

Inequalities in the economic sphere are a determining factor in gender relations and power. Higher economic empowerment of women is related not only to a greater ability to choose and make strategic decisions in the economic sphere, but can also have a positive impact on other areas of their lives, providing greater autonomy and decision-making capacity.

We work for a more just economic system, to ensure effective enjoyment of women's economic rights.
