Extremists have shown what frightens them most: a girl with a book.
I was raised by three strong women in my life: mother, grandmother, and my sister. Perhaps that is why I am passionate about causes that help women. What’s your background? Why are you passionate about certain causes?

Organization Highlight
Today, I want to highlight two women’s organizations. If you know other women’s organizations that are hiring remote workers, please feel free to add them here.
The Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) is a global, feminist, membership, movement-support organization. 
For over 35 years, AWID has been a part of an incredible ecosystem of feminist movements working to achieve gender justice and women’s human rights worldwide.
AWID Mission Statement
AWID envisions a world where feminist realities flourish, where resources and power are shared in ways that enable everyone, and future generations, to thrive and realize their full potential with dignity, love and respect, and where Earth nurtures life in all its diversity.
AWID Mission
Our mission is to support feminist, women’s rights and gender justice movements to thrive, to be a driving force in challenging systems of oppression, and to co-create feminist realities.
Co-creating Feminist Realities: AWID’s 2018-2022 Strategic Plan
WECAN International engages women grassroots activists, Indigenous and business leaders, scientists, policy makers, farmers, academics and culture-shapers in collaboration with the goal of stopping the escalation of climate change and environmental and community degradation, while accelerating the implementation of just climate solutions through women’s empowerment, advocacy at international policy forums, trainings, on-the-ground projects, advocacy campaigns, and political, economic, social and environmental action.

WECAN Mission Statement
The Women’s Earth and Climate Action Network (WECAN) International is a climate justice-based initiative established to unite women worldwide as powerful stakeholders in sustainability solutions, policy advocacy, and worldwide movement building for social and ecologic justice.
WECAN Vision Statement
WECAN International was created to accelerate a holistic Global Women’s Earth and Climate Action through the protection and defense of the Earth’s diverse ecosystems and communities.
Our basic relationship with the natural world has been distorted. Humanity is systematically destroying our home and undermining the vital cycles of our living Earth. We are in dire need of a paradigm shift and an upwelling of global action. The window for meaningful action on climate change will not be open for long.
It is internationally recognized that women are critical to implementing climate change and sustainability solutions, however there is a lack of prominent mechanisms or platforms to wield a united effort into a defined movement. WECAN is engaging women’s organizations worldwide, from many sectors, to join together and take action. Our strategic focus is strengthening and building the capacity of women’s leadership worldwide as an essential ingredient to solving critical issues of climate mitigation and adaptation, while also transforming and healing our relationship with Nature.
We believe breakthrough alliances are critical at this time. The complexities of the climate crisis require systemic change in how we are living with each other and our Earth. By gathering diverse representation, WECAN International embraces a whole-systems approach to understanding the intricacies of climate change, from the impacts on the natural world to the threats to social justice and survival.
We work ongoingly to organize and support direct actions and mobilizations; on the ground climate solutions projects; frontline community solidarity delegations; educational events and trainings; media and storytelling; and political advocacy. WECAN International carries forth it’s mission using an ‘inside/outside’ strategy – engaging both inside of United Nations climate change negotiations and other global policy forums, and outside on the streets, in the fields and in the forests with the people’s movement for climate justice.
Job Highlight
The Communications and Outreach Coordinator will work remotely, under the guidance of WECAN International’s Executive Director - and contribute to writing and storytelling; strategic media and press efforts; network-building and outreach communications; social media management; and other varied support of WECAN International’s projects and efforts to uplift women’s rights, Indigenous rights, Rights of Nature, and rights of future generations in all climate action, resistance efforts, and decision-making.
