Gender Justice

August 2018

CARE is committed to working for gender justice – a world where all people, whatever their sex or gender identity, are free from fear and the threat of violence, and enjoy equal rights, freedoms, and access to opportunities and resources.

CARE is also committed to working in solidarity with international women’s movements and to building partnerships that amplify the agendas of women-led and women’s rights organisations in the global South - such as support for domestic worker associations and unions in Latin America.
