Imagine not having your voice heard, seeing atrocities and injustices being committed in front of your very eyes and not being able to do anything to stop it but left to suffer in silence. Many women have taken a stand but only to be imprisoned, raped, tortured and in some cases killed for standing up for their basic human rights.
Forgotten Women is a global voice for women who have been silenced, we believe that rights and freedom anywhere in the world is an integral part of the global struggle for human dignity. We aim to address human rights violations from the emboldened individuals.
Advocacy is an integral part of our overall mission, you cannot be an humanitarian and ignore the global struggle for basic rights [Sunny Bahia, Forgotten Women]
We believe that rights and freedom anywhere in the world is an integral part of the global struggle for human dignity. We aim to address human rights violations, many are often cut off from their families, held in secret locations, refused legal advice or representation, sexually, physically and mentally abused and held without trial for years. Our aim is to provide liberty for all regardless of race, colour and belief, to hold to account those who have forced injustice on the innocent. We do this by lobbying, raising awareness, engaging in global coverage, petitioning and involving national and international courts to fight against global oppression.
