Organizations that support Women's Rights

As you may know, the theme for the 2021 Peace Project is Women's Rights around the world. In many countries women are treated as second class. Many have no rights to vote, drive, health care, and so much more. On the postcards that will be distributed with the doves are a list of various organizations that provide support and education to women around the world. There are many organizations that do wonderful things, but for the purpose of this project, I selected six. I wanted to just briefly write about them, and provide you a link to their site. If you click on their logo, it will take you directly to their website. You can read more about the organization, what they stand for, and how they help women to gain their independence, their freedom, and their right to be part of the human race.
