The success of Every Single Woman
Every single woman seeking protection in the UK has the right to an asylum system sensitive to her needs and responsive to the persecution she has suffered

Every single woman
The Charter of the Rights of Women Seeking Asylum inspired the Every Single Woman campaign. Every Single Woman compares the support available to women seeking asylum with that available to all other women settled in the UK - and demands that women seeking asylum are extended the same minimum standards we would expect for anyone else.
Every Single Woman shows all too clearly why a gender-sensitive asylum system is urgently needed. You can read the campaign briefing or extended briefing to learn more, or read further details below about how the campaign unfolded...
Every Single Woman was highly commended at the Charity Awards 2010
