VOW is the Voices Of Women.
We are women who have taken the VOW to raise our voices–to expose and demand justice for the cultural and ideological persecution of women and girls in our own neighborhoods and throughout the world.
We will not remain silent. We will not wait for others to rescue the most vulnerable. Founded for women, by women, VOW speaks for the persecuted voiceless, offers strength for the weak, and hope for the hopeless.
…to help all women and girls in need. VOW’s staff is comprised of women who are Jewish, Christian, and Secularists. VOW strives to continue to add a diverse group of women as staff members for the single purpose of freedom and safety for women and girls worldwide. VOW aids individual women, girls and organizations regardless of their cultural background, ethnicity, faith, or race. VOW welcomes the opportunity to partner and network with organizations worldwide to help women and girl transform their lives from victim to victor. We partner with women of all faiths; our writers and advocates represent diverse ethnicities and belief systems; we partner with feminists, secularists, those who believe in the importance of separation religion and state and others. VOW believes that people from all political backgrounds, religious backgrounds, race, sexual orientation, and nationalities can come together and agree that acid attacks, domestic violence, female genital mutilation, honor violence, forced marriage, human trafficking, sexual assault and rape should never happen. These same people can put their differences aside and unite in fighting the oppression of girls and women around the world.
Regardless of their background and faith, The women of VOW offer compassion, hope, and joy to those who have survived the darkest days of sorrow. We rejoice in a new dawn.
