"With the rise of brutal armed conflicts and extremism we are currently seeing unprecedented levels of violence against women, which means there has never been a greater need for the work of Women for Women International to support women survivors." Dame Helen Mirren
As a strong woman and powerful advocate for equality, Dame Helen Mirren is an inspiration for many women the world over, making her perfect for the role of Women for Women International’s first ever Patron. We are so honoured and proud to have her support and look forward to working together to raise women's voices all over the world.
"I’m delighted to be able to lend my support, and hope to help Women for Women International reach many more women in need around the world," shares Dame Helen Mirren.
As Dame Helen says, the need to stand together is more important - and urgent - than ever. She is sponsoring a sister in South Sudan, helping a woman survivor of war rebuild her life. Transformations like that of Fatuma is just one of the many examples of how inspiring sisterhood can be.
