The Global Women's Project mourns the passing of Nelson Mandela and celebrates his incomparable achievements. Mandela's work challenged prejudices of all kinds and inspired people across the world to work against injustice. Women have historically been among those most oppressed, and still bear great injustice and inequality in many regions of the world today. As we look toward Human Rights Day on December 10, the Global Women's Project affirms the timeless message of Nelson Mandela, who wrote in a letter, August 1, 1970: “Social equality is the only basis of human happiness.”  Please join us in commemorating Mandela's legacy by supporting our work!
