March – Women’s History Month – is the perfect time for all of us to look around at how our community treats women and ask ourselves what we can do to contribute to an equal and equitable society.
In February, PWG was proud to attend Basel’s Equal Pay Day at Marktplatz, and on March 18th we showed solidarity with our fellow Swiss residents in the Women’s March in Zürich.
Although we still have our work cut out for ourselves here in Switzerland, there are even greater injustices abroad. While we can’t be everywhere at once, we can support those organizations that go the extra mile to make the world a safer place for women.
SWISSAID is working hard to achieve these goals, and faces enormous obstacles. Help us join the fight by donating to their campaign against domestic violence in India. You can donate directly on their page, or leave a donation with us at our upcoming events.
At last week’s March Main Meeting, our members and guests donated 60CHF – inspired by their generosity, PWG will match that amount and double it.
