with women, for women
Meeting Ukrainian women’s wartime needs
UWF is transforming its support for the Ukrainian women's/feminist movement to meet emerging needs.
The war in Ukraine may be changing the women’s/feminist movement, but it’s not stopping it. On the contrary, we’re translating most of our movement-development initiatives into new formats.
We know the civil society organizations, partnerships, and coalitions that supported Ukrainian women so effectively during peacetime are also best placed to help women caught in the crisis of war. UWF continues to support these organizations, every day seeking and implementing solutions to help women overcome war’s challenges and to mitigate its impact on their future.

For Canadians, gender equality is a very importants issue. And women's organizations are drivers of change. On the positions we hold, and with knowledge we have, we can be nothing but feminists.

European integration is not possible without gender equality. NGOs defend the achievements of gender policy, do not allow them to be invalidated by enemies of human rights.
