Gender Justice Now! 

Over the past 6 months there has been an unprecedented global movement to challenge discrimination, violence and harassment against women. This year, as we celebrate the women who have brought this conversation to the forefront of public discourse, it is also a time to draw attention to the experiences of those who have not garnered such high profile recognition. This International Women’s Day we are seeking to shine a light on the situation for women in Swaziland.

Did you know that in Swaziland there are no laws criminalising domestic violence, forced marriage, or marital rape? Or that Swazi married women do not have equal legal status to their male counterparts, they cannot even buy or sell property without permission? There are many women from across the region who are working to challenge these sexist laws, and patriarchal oppression. At ACTSA we seek to support these women, raising awareness of their struggle and partnering on projects to support the work they do. 

Please donate £20 or what you can afford to help us continue supporting the women of Swaziland in their struggle for gender equality and their fundamental rights.   

Thank you.

This International Women’s Day we are seeking to shine a light on the situation for women in Southern Africa.
