Young Women's Trust

Formerly YWCA and Platform 51, Young Women's trust supports girls and women as they take control of their lives. Girls and women today face problems that are often subtle or misunderstood. Despite shifts in attitude and changes in the law, women are often unheard, isolated and face discrimination. This is costly both to women and to society. To find out more visit; http://www.youngwomenstrust.org/
