About Platform 51
Platform 51 supports girls and women as they take control of their lives.
Girls and women today face problems that are often subtle or misunderstood. Despite shifts in attitude and changes in the law, women are often unheard, isolated and face discrimination. This is costly both to women and to society.
At Platform 51, girls and women are at the heart of all we do.
Our activities, services and campaigns are about things women need and want. We give them a platform to have their say and challenge discrimination.
We want a world where women are in control of their own lives.
