Gender and development

26th July 2015

ACT Alliance has redoubled its commitment to ending gender-based violence and violence against women and girls. ACT Alliance celebrates the comprehensive contribution of woman and girls to community development, sustainable development, and economic development all over the world.

However, ACT Alliance members have seen first-hand the double, triple and compounded burden poverty has on the lives of women and girls, and laments the existence of societal-constructs that delegitimise the efforts of women and girls as subservient to their male counter parts.

For ACT Alliance, gender inequality simply must end, and we commit to the realisation of this ambition in all of our development programming, advocacy and policy efforts as well as in our humanitarian response.
