Women and girls are often the faces of poverty. And they are essential to overcoming it. You have likely seen the statistics – women have fewer resources and less power compared to men, and they can experience further inequality because of their class, ethnicity and age. Yet, we have also seen the difference made when women have equal job opportunities, health care, education, decision-making power and freedom from violence. When women and girls can make their own choices and exercise their collective voice, amazing things happen.

For years, Zainab suffered her husband’s beatings and abuse. Growing up in Nigeria, she was taught a woman’s rights came from her husband. When Zainab’s husband took a second wife, he often refused to give her money to feed their children. He became more violent towards her, and Zainab felt powerless. One in three women globally experience violence like Zainab, and in the countries where we work, this rate is often much higher.
