Groupe de soutien animé par la psychologue Wendy Adrien et séance de méditation animée par Velina Elysée Charlier pour un groupe de nos marraines, de membres de notre staff et de nos bénévoles.
NÈGÈS MAWON est reconnaissante pour chaque femme qui donne de son temps, ses ressources, de son énergie et de son empathie pour accompagner des femmes et filles survivantes de violences à travers notre programme MARRAINAGE
Chacune d’entre elles confrontent elles aussi des situations extrêmement difficiles dans le contexte que nous vivons aujourd’hui en Haïti. Pourtant, elles sont là, infatigables, pour aider des centaines de femmes partout en Haïti, jour et nuit.

Another Rough Journey🙏🏽
Also, in November 2018, our attention was called to a case of a 13-year-old girl (from Idoma, Benue State), resident in Lagos but was summoned for #FGM in Ogun State wherein a community of migrant-Benue people were resident.
Her people said, "If she's not ImageImage
circumcised, she won't attend her parents' burial AND if she dies as an uncircumcised girl, her corpse would be thrown into a forest!
I set out for the trip with the amazing Barrister Yemi Adetiba @OluyemiOrija - the most kind lawyer in Nigeria🙌🏽 - she's the founder of @HeadfortF
We actually raised our money (I and the Barrister) to make this journey to an unknown location.
The journey was fearful, long and energy-sapping - we entered one 'igbo irumole😁' to another and Bar Adetiba's husband was calling us every now and then to track down our location.

Do you remember #Janabi? Abir Al Janabi. A 14-year-old #Iraqi girl. In 2006, Janabi's father stopped sending Janabi to school in fear of the #US Army's focus on his daughter. The Army who was establihing "#democracy" and "#human rights" in Iraq. 1/32
Janabi used to stay at home, spending her days of adolescence playing with her younger siblings.
The U.S. military's security checkpoint was located just 200 meters from Janabi's house. One day, a #USsoldier notices Janabi. And Janabi and her family were doomed right then. 2/32
For a few days at first, the #soldiers repeatedly came to Janabi's house in the name of search and made ugly gestures towards her. One day the four #armies decided that today they would be the day to enjoy Jamabai and kill some #Muslims. 3/32

A reminder:
On 26 Spt 2017, #SaudiArabia King Salman, the West best ally, issued an order to allow women to drive, with new guidelines to be created & implemented by June 2018. For four decades, no western country condemned Saudi for #WomenRights violation.

#Taliban #Afghanistan
Elections in Saudi Arabia have been historically rare. Municipal elections were held in 2005 planned for 2009. After 2 years' delay, they were held in 2011. In Sept 2011 King Abdullah granted women the right to vote & stand in the 2015 municipal elections.
#Taliban #Afghanistan
In June 2021, Saudi Arabia started allowing women to live alone without permission from a male guardian. This came as a development of an earlier ruling that affirmed the legality of the independence of an adult woman in a separate house.

#California #Resistance 🌊☀️🕶 = the state that erased women, for 13yrs silenced a female celebrity being abused and forcefully sterilized her with an IUD, women in prisons are sex slaves now housed with serial rapists who can be raped as many times as the rapist wants a day, and
YOU are most outrage at the police when they use a rubber bullet and silly string against Antifa who attacked feminist and religious groups protesting for women's rights and YOU think you are the woke "progressive" state why is California not trending EVERYWHERE. CA is a 3rd
world country for women, if this isn't the handmaid's tale I don't know what is. Kids are told to just accept seeing a mans genitals, a Black woman complained and did you support her Antifa you "racial social justice warriors" NO you supported the man with an illegal weapon in

Today i want to share my story of humiliation and verbal abuse i received from @BitiTendai. Say no to assault (physical and verbal) say no to gender based violence! #GBVmustfall

@BitiTendai is supposedly a national leader as VP of MDCA, a Christian and lawyer but the way he behaved is NOT acceptable.
He shouted at me, called me “stupid very stupid” several time’s and made me feel intimidated, belittled and publicly humiliated.
@BitiTendai violated my rights as a woman. He violently pointed his fingers at my face and threatened me. To put this into context neither me nor my company had any prior dealings with this man, we have never spoken to him and yet his behavior was irrational, hysterical...
