WHO WE ARE
The Equality Institute is a global feminist agency working to advance gender equality and end violence against women and girls. Our vision is a world in which diversity is celebrated, all people are respected, and power and resources are shared equally. We are values-driven and underpinned by intersectional feminist principles in the ways we work and how we conduct ourselves. We believe that how we work matters as much as what we do.
