HerRights Vision and Mission


HerRights’ vision is a world in which women are free to flourish, prosper, and speak their truth – a world free of rape, violence, bigotry, and institutionalized inequality.


HerRights’ mission is to achieve social and economic gender parity through a global network that delivers empowerment tools, eliminates gender-based violence, and drives gender-equality policies.

Because women’s rights are human rights, and because elevating women benefits all people, we:

  • Focus on plurality, knowing we are stronger because of our differences.

  • Acknowledge intersectionality, knowing we must not ignore those most impacted by the intersections of oppression, particularly oppression of women within the reality of structural racism.

  • Prioritize equity and justice as transformative elements that lead toward a vision of a healthy, just, gender-equal, multiracial, democratic society, free from oppression and exploitation, in which every individual thrives with power and purpose.

Gender Rights Crisis in Afghanistan

Women in Afghanistan are currently living in a situation of institutionalized gender oppression, segregation, and impunity for gendered violence, a situation that has come to be known as “gender apartheid.”

Since their takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021, the Taliban have engaged in a multi-level power game to strengthen their grip on the state of Afghanistan by restricting every aspect of women’s lives.

Women Fundraising

Love in the Time of COVID

The needs are endless in the COVID crises. We, team HerRights, are trying to partner in as many ways as possible to maximize our impact and ability to help those in need. We are focusing on women who are socio-economically disadvantaged but are undeterred in their commitment to make a difference in gender parity and gender representation.

These are gender violence victims facing homelessness, single mothers who can't give up. These are jobless migrant workers returning to their villages where they sustained education of their next generation through their city earnings.  We are selecting such individuals and organizations from our partner non-profits in the US and India, vetting the stories to select the highest need recipients, and hoping that our targeted effort would help ensure that women who;  in spite of their severely limiting personal situations, are our partner and inspiration in the gender empowerment cause don't fail  in their mission because of the COVID crises.
Through this fundraiser, we are raising money to benefit  women affected by COVID-19 who are facing unemployment or wage reduction and have urgent or consistent bills to be paid. The funds will be dispersed directly and through some of HerRights  non-profit partners. 
We acknowledge that we can't help everyone. Here is a link for your peruse if you'd like to explore some of the other areas you can contribute in or would like to understand our rationale for selecting to work on this segment: Love in the Time of COVID 

As we proceed in this journey, we have new cases pouring in daily. We will update with personal stories to help you help us.
