Global launch of nework to empower women

Diane Abbott, Caroline Spelman and Stephen Timms were the parliamentarians present at the launch of Micah Challenge’s new network to empower women called Woman To Woman.

This unique initiative aims to empower girls and women to be change-makers to help the poor, by prompting action, prayer and campaigns.

Amanda Jackson, Head of Policy and Campaigns at Micah Challenge, said, “Woman to Woman is one initiative that seeks to encourage women, who believe in God’s transforming hope, to speak out and take action against injustices suffered by women and girls – like trafficking, sexual violence, maternal deaths, poverty and low status.

“It wants to highlight the wonderful work already being done quietly by women, and encourage more women to see the possibilities for advocacy.”

Woman to Woman organisers hope to remind world leaders of their promises made in 2000 to meet the Millennium Development Goals by 2015.

Former Hillsong worship leader Darlene Zschech, Lynne Hybels and Pastor Maureen B Shana from Zimbabwe have also endorsed the Woman to Woman network.
