Fighting for Women’s Rights.
Amanda (astudyofwings) & Emily (mercutiyo)
Hi guys! So Emily and I are raising money for NOW, a women’s rights organization. We want each of you that read this to become aware that women inequality is a major issue in the entire world. Below is the reason why we decided to do this, and what this organization is all about
Even though, it has been years since the protest in 1920 for women’s rights in New York, women are still fighting all over the world for their freedom and proper human rights. The National Organization of Women is a association that wants to empower women all over the world, whether it be in the middle east, where many girls aren’t aloud to leave their home with out a male escort and face many threats and dangers every day; or if its in the middle of the south in the United States where men are paid 30 cents more then the average women.
Our goal is too raise 200 dollars by May 3rd, these two hundred dollars will be donated to NOW and used to bring awareness to this topic, and used to give housing, food, and supplies to these women in need.
We believe this is an important topic to raise money for simply because more then half of the population is made up of females, therefore when there is a large gap between the genders – we should know that there is a problem that should be approached.
Sadly, the government hasn’t done much to stop this large gap, which means we must take it upon ourselves to rise up and fight for equality together.
It would be a huge help, and super fantastic if you could donate and help us reach our goal of $200! Thanks!
