The Communications X-CHANGE is an online library of materials contributed by organizations and individuals around the world who are working to end violence against women and girls. A wide assortment of international content includes flyers, posters, videos, brochures, educational materials and more, all of which you can view and download free of charge. The project, developed by Futures Without Violence with generous support from the Avon Foundation for Women, is now led by the Global Women’s Institute (GWI) at the George Washington University.
The Communications X-CHANGE represents an innovative approach to building a stronger worldwide movement to change attitudes and behaviors and build communities of respect. We hope you'll make the library even more powerful by submitting your materials dedicated to preventing violence against women and children, and use the information you find here to raise awareness and take action.
The Global Women’s Institute (GWI) at the George Washington University launched in the Fall of 2012 as a university-wide initiative to advance gender equality through interdisciplinary research, education, and policy and outreach. GWI serves as a catalyst for action, linking faculty and students with international researchers, practitioners, activists, and policymakers to end violence against women and girls, empower women economically, and increase women’s participation and leadership in society. As proud stewards of the Communications X-CHANGE, GWI believes this resource helps to build crucial bridges between evidence and action.
