The Unjust Treatment of Women Around The World

The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them; he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.
--Psalm 34:17-18 (NIV)

Girls still are less likely to be in school than boys. Two out of three illiterate adults are women. Every 90 seconds of every day, a woman dies in pregnancy or childbirth. Violence against women and girls remains a global pandemic, violating women’s rights and perpetuating harm in every country and community. Child marriage is a widespread practice that can tear girls from school and spurs high rates of maternal illness and death. Millions of women and girls face abuse in what should be the sanctuary of their own homes. 

Cultures and circumstances have trapped women in suffering, but God has the power to lift women above their desperate circumstances, restoring their dignity and bringing them hope in Jesus' name.

TWR Women of Hope unites the hearts of women to the hope and healing that Jesus Christ brings and provides tools that enable women to make a difference to those around them.
