Lobby the UN, the EU, Governments and organisations
May 2021 - challenge the International Olympic Committee before the 2021 games!
WDI are planning to challenge the International Olympic Committee before the 2021 games on their rules for women's sports. We are hoping to file a petition to the Court of Arbitration of Sports and are looking for a client / petitioner.
- Do you know a woman who might be affected?
- Do you know anyone who is particpating in the Olympics this year, or who has been denied a place? Or anyone who is hoping to participate in future years?
- Do you know a state, or sports club or federation that is affected by the IOC rules allowing males to participate in women's sports?
If so, please get in touch with WHRC at [email protected] in case it will help our challenge.
April 2021 - Sign an open letter to UNWomen!
sign our open letter to UNWomen to ask that the recruitment process for its new director is transparent and free from the influence of monied male interests.
More International lobbying
We have been lobbying the UN, the EU, governments and international organisations to encourage them to protect women's sex-based rights. If you think you might be able to help you could use the resources below to do some lobbying yourself - or volunteer with us! See below for details.
You could send this lobby letter to decision makers:
Read this article to see how UNWomen works and create your own letter.
Write letters to decision makers you know - or you could write to:
Dr. Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka
Executive Director of UN Women
220 East 42nd Street, New York, NY 10017, USA
If you have any good ideas or are in touch with any decision makers let us know at [email protected] so we can replicate any good work.

WDI country contacts are responsible for helping with translation and dissemination of the Declaration in their country. They collect signatures on the Declaration, represent their country's interests in lobbying efforts, and provide news and updates about what is happening on the ground.
You can connect with your local country contact here.
If your country is not on the list, you can become a country contact yourself!
WDI raises funds to pay for translation and international promotion of the Women's Declaration. We also need to pay for our hosting, email platform, Zoom webinars, editing and other important services.
