At its heart, PMC is a women’s rights organization dedicated to enhancing the well-being and status of women and girls around the world. And by serving women and girls, PMC also serves the rest of humanity and the Earth.
Millions of women around the world can’t read, have never been to a doctor’s office, and are not considered equal to their husbands. The need for change is obvious. Women and girls around the world are robbed of social power and self-determination. We must eradicate these injustices by fighting against things like female genital mutilation, rape, and child marriage.
The future depends largely on the investments made right now in women’s rights. PMC works to advance gender equity, girls’ equal access to education, and reproductive health. When we empower women, we allow them to determine the future of their lives. We improve the health of individuals and families. And we create a world where women can control the number of children they have.
Empowering women and girls would be a wonderful moment in the evolution of human-kind — and would propel our ability to solve other crucial social and environmental challenges.
