AWID's members are dedicated to achieving gender equality, sustainable development and women's rights around the world. Our shared values help us to achieve this mission. These values include:

  1. Diversity - Women come from all backgrounds, beliefs, abilities and experiences. As such, openness to diversity must be an integral aspect of advancing women's rights. We believe in working together as feminists and gender equality advocates, in learning from each other's diverse realities, and in creating just societies and healthy environments for every person.
  2. Human rights - We will work towards the full application of the rights enshrined in CEDAW and other international law and against fundamentalisms of all sorts that threaten these rights. Human rights must be seen as indivisible and universal. We will work towards the eradication of all discriminations based on gender, sexuality, religion, age, ability, ethnic background, nationality, class or other factors.
  3. Autonomy - We champion a woman's right to choose her relationships, her goals, her dreams, and what she wants to do with her mind, body and spirit.
  4. Cooperation - We work towards a world and an economic system based on social and economic justice, interdependence, solidarity and respect rather than competition and exploitation. We want a world without war and without the systems of oppression against which women and men have struggled in patriarchal societies for thousands of years.
  5. Responsibility - In all of our work, we will strive for transparency, responsible use of our resources, fairness in our relations, accountability, integrity and excellence.
