In recognition of International Women’s Day and the 20th anniversary of the Stephen Lewis Foundation, we are proud to celebrate the powerful women who have been a part of the struggle to end the HIV pandemic. Every day, young girls and women in sub-Saharan Africa confront the gendered nature of the pandemic, one that leaves them twice as likely as their male peers to be living with HIV – yet they have held their communities together and continued the fight for a future free from AIDS. Read about some of the women driving change, and learn how together we can ensure power and dignity for all women.
