At Gender Across Borders, we believe that fostering a community of global feminists cannot be done alone which is why we partner with similar organizations that share our mission of voicing and progressing gender relations worldwide.
Please check out these awesome organizations below. If your organization is interested in partnering with us, please contact Emily at emily [at] genderacrossborders [dot] com.
The Sisterhood is Global Institute (SIGI) was founded 26 years ago on the understanding that women are the long-ignored lynchpin to solving the world’s many critical issues; from inequality to environmental degradation, from poverty and hunger to conflict and violence, it is women who hold the keys to building enduring change locally and globally.
For the last quarter century visionary feminist leaders from around the world have been working with SIGI to establish an accessible movement supporting and connecting women and women’s groups, encouraging collaboration within and across sectors. SIGI seeks to build a critical mass of grassroots support to address the challenges facing women in their daily lives, regardless of time or place. SIGI has also been a strong advocate for women internationally and has consultative status with the U.N.
In November 2009, SIGI took the next critical step and launched GlobalSister.org, an “always on” organizational social networking platform to enable individuals and civil society groups from diverse backgrounds and diverse missions to come together to build a unified global Women’s Movement.
GlobalSister.org is a virtual space where women’s organizations can connect and collaborate, share experiences and knowledge, gain valuable resources and insights, mobilize and organize activists, and build individual and organizational capacity.
Join GlobalSister.org and make history!
