The grant also brings international attention to the crisis, region, or issue for which the recipient works.

The Ginetta Sagan Award recognizes and assists women who are working to protect the liberty and lives of women and children in areas where human rights violations are widespread. The annual award grant is given in recognition of individual accomplishment but also in the belief that it will serve as a beacon of hope to women everywhere who are fighting for human rights. The Award is intended to help women throughout the world in their struggle to overcome oppression and to let them know that they are not alone.

The award can be used by the awardee at her complete discretion. In addition to the award, the awardee can receive up to $5,000 to further her professional development. This can include covering her expenses to participate in, and/or attend training throughout 2022.
