Founded by Emmy-winning reporter and congresswoman Marjorie Margolies in 1998, Women's Campaign International is now a renowned NGO working with individuals and communities throughout the developing world.


In 1995 former Member of Congress Marjorie Margolies directed the United States delegation to the United Nations Fourth World Conference on Women. Held in Beijing, 189 countries signed a shared commitment to achieving equality, development and peace for women worldwide. Inspired by these commitments, Ms. Margolies founded Women’s Campaign International (WCI) to empower women to achieve these goals.

Today, WCI’s programs have equipped more than 400,000 individuals in 45 countries. WCI's tried and trusted programs teach skill building in areas of politics, business, and community engagement, so that communities can pass down lessons for years to come, promoting prolonged peace and equality.
