Young Women’s Alliance

Welcome to the NAWO Young Women’s Alliance (YWA) Page!

We are a group of young women and men under 25 from around the UK passionate about achieving gender equality. We specialise in supporting young advocates to understand their rights and have the confidence to call for them, especially using legal frameworks as tools for change.

See where NAWO’s Young Women’s Alliance can take you by watching Lucy Cole, one of our Young Women’s Alliance delegates, in her speech below! Or read her blog about what speaking as a YWA member meant to her.

Members enjoy access to regular opportunities to speak up and be heard at the local, national and international levels alongside leading individuals, organisations and decision-makers, some of which are shared here:

  • YWA blog
  • YWA Advance
  • YWA at CSW
Read about delegates’ experiences on their blog, from speaking at the UK parliament in YWA Advance, our newest programme or at the United Nations’ Commission on the Status of Women to get a flavour of our work.

Interested in getting involved? Join our mailing list to gain access to all of our events, connections and opportunities to lead in the UK, Europe and internationally! We’re also on socials as @NAWOYouth.

We’re always interested in ways to grow our YWA network and share and create opportunities for young people, so please let us know if you or your organisation are doing anything that you’d like us to share by emailing
