About Women For Change

Women For Change (WFC) is a non-profit organisation established in 2016 that advocates for the constitutional rights of women and children in South Africa. WFC educates, advocates, and campaigns on Gender-Based Violence & Femicide (GBVF), Human Rights, and Gender Equality daily.

We engage with the public via social media platforms, reaching up to 15 million people monthly influencing policymakers and public opinion. WFC assists victims and families with vital resources such as medical assistance, legal assistance, counsellors, information about GBVF and how to handle each case.

Run For Her

Join our Run For Her Virtual Race and make every step count. This fundraising event lets you run or walk anywhere, anytime, while honouring every woman we have lost due to femicide in South Africa.

Dedicate every kilometre to the 4,169 women tragically murdered in 2022/23. Whether you run solo, with friends, or with family, your participation helps raise awareness and funds for GBV survivors.

Date: Run, walk, hike, cycle, or swim any distance on any day during Women’s Month, August 2024.

Location: The best of a Virtual Race is that you can choose your route. Take a hike, stroll through your neighbourhood, hit the gym, or run along the beach – you decide. Do it solo, with your bestie, boyfriend, colleagues or family.

Distance: Cover any distance that feels meaningful to you. Every kilometre is dedicated to one of the 4,169 women tragically murdered in 2022/23.
