The shocking news of 22-year-old Iranian Mahsa Amini's death recently by suspicious circumstances due to arrest for not wearing the hijab and by possible police brutality has sent shock waves around the world. The innocence of Mahsa Amini while fighting for women's freedom of how we should dress, act or behave can't be ignored. Women from western countries or more open societies should not turn a blind eye to what is happening in oppressive nations; as we push for a global, fairer society, the need for women's equality is still a compulsory subject. Countries like Iran, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia are still hitting the headlines for brutal disproportioned rights for women who live there. We watch it on the news and then turn a blind eye, live our lives and forget until the next shocking thing happens. Females worldwide can unite and show solidarity as we live, travel, connect and work globally. Females need to be the light for oppressed countries and show that their voices are being heard.
There is support. There is another solution.
Her Expat Life outlines ways that women can help other women from oppressed nations fight for equality.
There are organizations all over the world that are fighting hard for gender equality. You can get in touch and volunteer in any way you can. To volunteer with women's rights, find a position where you can utilize your skill sets, such as providing reproductive and maternal healthcare, counselling, or teaching English. Some popular countries to volunteer for women's rights include India, Guatemala, Cambodia, Morocco, and Kenya.
2: Start a fundraiser
You can do this in your home town or city, host events like a dinner or auction, bake sale, fashion shows or even karaoke. Get people involved to help you, support the cause and spread the word on what the fundraiser is for: the more women, the better.
3: Become a corporate sponsor
Corporate sponsorship support is a payment by a business to a nonprofit to further the nonprofit's mission that is generally recognized by the nonprofit with an acknowledgement that the business has supported the nonprofit's activities, programs, or special events.
Business and corporate women have the means to pursue this way of facilitating women's rights through corporate sponsoring the best nonprofits for female rights.
