Statement on the Assault Against American Democracy

WomenStrong International released the following statement today in response to the violence that took place at the U.S. Capitol, on January 6, 2021:

What we witnessed yesterday at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, DC, is anathema to every value WomenStrong holds.

We believe in a world where women and girls and their families are free to speak their minds, exercise their human rights, and shape their lives and their future.

WomenStrong stands with all those committed to restoring and protecting our rights, our democracy, and social justice, both in the United States and around the world.
