SheDecides is a truly global movement, with Friends and Champions from all over the world and local action springing up in many countries.
Since the movement emerged in January 2017, it has become clear that as well as making big change globally, shifting the narrative and social norms, and demonstrating global solidarity, there needs to be focus on achieving change at the local level.
In many places, the energy behind the bold and ambitious vision is sparking national and regional movements that are starting to identify the most pressing policy changes and other transformative developments for their specific contexts.
Strong and forceful local movements are making real change happen – shifting social norms; adapting laws, policies and procedures that block access to rights; and unlocking resources for quality services. They also have important roles to play in strengthening and propelling the global movement and serving as models for similar efforts in other regions and countries.
