SECURITY4WOMEN (S4W) is an Alliance of Australian Women’s organisations. S4W members and partners work together to empower women to make choices that ensure their financial security and ability to live their lives independently. S4W addresses many aspects of women’s lives including education, health, employment, personal safety and financial security and is one of the four National Women’s Alliances funded by the federal government’s Office for Women. The 10thousandgirl Campaign is one of these partners and is working with S4W to distribute scholarships to women otherwise unable to be involved.
