Thanks to the dedication and passion of our supporters, IWHC helped secure a number of victories for women and girls in 2014. Together with our partners, we successfully pushed governments at the United Nations to make gender equality and sexual and reproductive health a priority in global development goals. We helped secure commitments from 118 countries to end child marriage. We awarded more than $1.5 million in grants to women's rights activists in developing countries. With this support, our local partners won major advances, from outlawing child marriage in Pakistan to expanding access to abortion in Peru. And in Washington, D.C., we worked with allies in Congress to lift a ban on abortion coverage for Peace Corps Volunteers.
