IWC champions gender equality and the health and rights of women and girls. We connect people, ideas, and resources to drive solutions for girls and women.

Through advocacy and campaigning, IWC promotes the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), especially Goal #5 (SDG5): “Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls.”

As an organization in special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), IWC participates in the yearly sessions of the UN Commission on the Status of Women, the UN’s principal body dedicated to the promotion of gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls.
