Sisters For Change is an international non-governmental organisation that works to combat violence against women and girls through legal empowerment programmes, legislative reform, technical assistance initiatives and legal advocacy. SFC works to generate systemic change in how governments combat violence against women, structural change to give women voice and agency in justice mechanisms, and social change to end the social acceptance of violence against women and girls.
We work in the UK, India, Indonesia and across the Commonwealth. In the UK, India and Indonesia, we strengthen the legal capacity of local women’s organisations, human rights defenders, women-led unions and activist networks, and support them to hold authorities accountable under the law. In our role as a member of the Equality & Justice Alliance consortium, we work across the Commonwealth — Africa, Asia, Caribbean and Pacific — to provide technical legal assistance, policy advice and research support to governments and civil society organisations in order to reform laws that discriminate against women, girls and LGBT people, and ensure equality for all.
