Join #Refuge100 and fundraise for women escaping violence

100 years ago, women fought against inequality and won the right to vote. 100 years on, we’re still fighting for equality. For far too many, inequality and violence against women are two sides of the same coin. Join #Refuge100 and help us support hundreds of women escaping violence.

Around 100 women are killed every year by a current or ex-partner in England and Wales alone. If you’re as outraged as us by this, in the lead up to International Women’s Day, take part in #Refuge100 and raise £100 of life-saving funds for women fleeing abuse.

You can either raise your £100 over the month period or join others on International Women’s Day, 8 March, for a collective day of fundraising.

Help women like Melanie*, who joined one of Refuge’s support groups

  Coming to the support group every week and listening to all the other women made me realise I am not alone. One woman started talking about what had happened to her kids, and that was the breakthrough for me. This woman was still standing strong – ‘that’s what I can do’, I thought.
