About the X-Change
The Communications X-CHANGE is an online library of materials contributed by organizations and individuals around the world who are working to end violence against women and girls.
GWI is now the proud steward of the Communications X-Change, a global Internet-based platform for sharing communication materials that was created by Futures Without Violence with support from the Avon Foundation. The X-Change is an innovative approach for building a stronger worldwide movement and sharing local initiatives designed to reduce violence against women and girls, promote gender equality and change social norms. Promoting discourse and sharing expertise internationally is critical to ending violence against women and girls in communities globally.
GWI bridges research, education, and action to effect change that advances gender equality and reduces violence and discrimination against women through. By strengthening the global knowledge base on gender issues and being a catalyst for change, we make a difference in the lives of women at home and abroad. As a university-wide initiative that is located in Washington D.C., GWI brings together world-class faculty, researchers, students, practitioners, activists, donors and policymakers on the most critical issues facing women and girls today. Working together, we achieve so much more. Join us.
