Many women and girls are still subject to gender-based discrimination and violence. Their opportunities to have their say and play an active part in shaping their own society are often restricted. Mission 21 strives for a world where human rights are equally valid for all genders, with no restrictions. Through our advocacy work, we assist people who support human rights for women; we provide training and education for them, and we prepare them to pass their knowledge on to others. Religion and faith support women and men in this process as they assert their rights. Each year, we organise advocacy workshops on topics such as contextual theology, integral leadership and the mechanisms of the UN.
