Hear Her. Empower Her.

Join our International Women's Day campaign to hear and empower women across the world. Through our campaign, #HearHerEmpowerHer, we are asking you to listen to women across the world, hear their stories and take action. Only through listening will we be able to create the change we need for all women to live without fear of violence and poverty.

hear her. empower her.

In solidarity and action is core to The Circle – the collective power of women, working together to make a difference to marginalised women around the world. It is more urgent than ever as violence against women and girls continues to stalk the world.

  • We live in a world where people have normalised violence against women. In every village, city, home, town and street, women are facing unimaginable levels of male violence.
  • 1 in 3 women across the world will experience gender-based violence and it is thought that less than 40 per cent of women who experience violence seek help of any sort.
  • Over 603 million women live in countries where domestic violence is not considered a crime.
  • In the UK, one in five women have experienced some type of sexual assault
  • Women everywhere are more likely to experience sexual and domestic violence and less likely to influence decisions that affect their lives.

I have learnt that if a man

lifts his hands once to you, he will do it again, over and over, and you must leave and you must not put up with it.
