Rosa is the first and only UK-wide women’s fund, started with the aim of finding new sources of money to fund women’s organisations.
Rosa’s vision is of equality and justice for all women and girls in the UK.
Rosa has funded innovative and exciting projects. Rosa has highlighted what women’s organisations can do, what they are doing, and why they need support. Rosa has encouraged other, much bigger funders to support work finding alternatives to custodial sentences for women offenders, to tackle Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) in the UK, and to support new and struggling organisations.
Most recently Rosa has funded projects looking at the issue of media representation of girls and young women. Anybody’s Shape Your Culture project received the organisation’s first ever funding.
Also last year Rosa has funded the End Violence Against Women coalition, along with Imkaan and Object, to work together on a project to tackle sexism and racism in music videos.
The official global theme of this year’s International Women’s Day is INSPIRING CHANGE.
An invitation to celebrate a woman who has inspired change. This may be someone who has made a difference to you personally or a woman who has affected the lives of people around the world.
Hint: they all share the same first name
1: Participate in the discussion and voice your opinion!
Use social media and share your thoughts about anything you find unjust for women and girls around you, in the UK or in the world.
Rosa is inviting people across the UK to raise much-needed funds for groups working with women and girls in the UK. By taking part and hosting events, you can celebrate the women who have inspired you.
International Women’s Day is a great opportunity to show support for women and girls across the UK, and to learn about the ways women and girls are working together creatively to tackle the issues women and girls face in 2014.The money raised from each Rosa event will be used to support initiatives and projects working to benefit women and girls across the UK.
