*FOR IMME**DIATE RELEASE*

*Philanthropedia: CWGL Among Top 5 Expert-Recommended High-Impact 
Nonprofits *

We are excited to share that a group of experts identified the Center 
for Women's Global Leadership (CWGL), based at Rutgers University, as 
*/among top 5 high-impact nonprofits/* working in the field of violence 
against women internationally. "CWGL is honored to be recognized for our 
steadfast work and commitment to ending violence against women and 
promoting human rights for all," Radhika Balakrishnan, executive 
director. "We thank Philanthropedia and their experts."

Experts noted that */CWGL is a small organization with a high-impact 
vision, strategy and analysis/*. This is in part because of its location 
within Rutgers, which allows it academic freedom and access to faculty 
and students, and its proximity to NY which enables easy access to the 
UN and other international actors. CWGL also established, and is the 
international coordinator of, the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender 
Violence, a worldwide campaign beginning November 25 (International Day 
Against Violence Against Women) and ending December 10 (International 
Human Rights Day) in order to symbolically link violence against women 
and human rights and emphasize that such violence is a violation of 
human rights. CWGL also provides direct training to women leaders around 
the world and was at the forefront of the GEAR Campaign to establish UN 
Women.

The Center for Women's Global Leadership strengthens and facilitates 
women's leadership for human rights and social justice worldwide. CWGL 
envisions a world in which all people are equal and gender equality is 
systemically realized by the achievement of human rights for all. 
Specifically, we work to:  advance economic and social rights from a 
feminist perspective; promote an end to violence against women and 
highlight the linkages with militarism; and build coalitions and deepen 
capacity around those urgent issues that are critical to the global 
women's movement to secure policy reform at the international and 
national levels.

Philanthropedia (at GuideStar) is a nonprofit organization working to 
help donors make smarter donations by connecting them with some of the 
highest impact nonprofits in a cause. They are different from other 
online rating or donation sites because they use experts to identify 
high-impact nonprofits.
