Location: Golden Gate Bridge and hundreds of Bridges around the world
Kiva Field Partner Women for Women International is collaborating with Google to present "Join me on the Bridge", an event in honor the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day! On March 8th, people around the world will come together in solidarity and stand on bridges around the world. We will be celebrating the achievements of generations of women before us while shining an international spotlight on the issues still facing women around the world.
Last year at the first ever global bridge campaign, more than 20,000 people joined Women for Women International on bridges across four continents. There have been great successes for women to celebrate: increased political representation, better economic situations, and legal protections in many nations around the world, but there is still much to do for women worldwide!
Come join us, on a bridge near you, and promote women! Click here to register for the event in San Francisco or in any participating location.
Since 1993, Women for Women International has been helping women survivors of war rebuild their lives. In Bosnia, Women for Women (Zene za Zene) has partnered with Kiva to offer microloans to women who are striving for financial security.
