Champions, standing up and leading the way
All over the world, people are standing up to say SheDecides
Champions are individuals - some representing countries and organisations - who act alone and together to propel us toward a reality where every girl and every woman has power over her body. Without question.
Champions stand up, speak out. They change laws and policies. They help unlock resources and push to create a new normal. They educate, they advocate and they open paths for others to do the same.
Below is the growing list of Champions, who are bold in pushing for real change for girls and women around the world.
