Despite many struggles and milestones of success, worldwide, one billion women continue to face violence. Education is key to empowering communities, and particularly girls and women, to overcome violence. Created in the spring of 2013, Women and Girls’ Education (WAGE) International is a New Jersey-based group that works with local and global organizations through the community networking to raise awareness, support, and develop educational resources for empowerment.
