We can all be Sheroes

Sign up to be a Refuge Shero

The aim of our Sheroes campaign is to build an active community of campaigners and supporters who are passionate about ending violence against women and girls (VAWG).

Small acts really can transform the world.

Every one of us can make a difference!

Take the Shero challenge

If you pledge to be a Shero, we will commit to sharing regular actions that you can take to confront gender inequality and violence against women and girls.

We kicked this off for the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, from 25 November till 10 December 2018. On each of the 16 days, we shared an action on our website and social media channels that you could take.

Please follow us across Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @RefugeCharity, you can still take our actions, share our content using #RefugeSheroes, add your thoughts, and post a video to tell your friends and followers why you have signed up to be a Shero.

Beyond 16 days, continue having conversations about violence against women and girls, challenging misogyny and stereotypes, calling out gender inequality.

As a Shero, you can expect:

  • Tools like graphics, Facebook frames, posters to download
  • Viral campaigns for you to join and share
  • Actions like tweeting MPs, signing a petition or an open letter
  • Ideas for your own events
  • Briefings on key issues like the Domestic Abuse Bill or refuge funding
  • Invitations to take part in stunts, marches and other activities
  • Updates on the Shero campaign and our successes

Now is the time to make a difference.
