Equality Now was founded in 1992 to work for the protection and promotion of the human rights of women around the world. Working with national human rights organizations and individual activists, Equality Now documents violence and discrimination against women and mobilizes international action to support their efforts to stop these human rights abuses.
Through its Women’s Action Network of concerned groups and individuals around the world, Equality Now:
- distributes information about human rights violations
- takes action to protest these violations
- brings public attention to human rights violations against women
In 2006, Can't Stop the Serenity Screenings were held in 47 cities around the world. More than $65,000 was raised for Equality Now.
Screenings have been held every year since 2006, with over $250,000 raised for the cause. CSTS 2009 is underway with 47 registered cities in 5 countries.
