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.
