Uthema seeks to understand and inform on the lived realities of women and girls in the Maldives - to use that knowledge to advocate for positive norm change and gender transformative impact on our communities. We have a particular interest in research, knowledge building and sharing as well as creating constructive conversations on the status of women in the Maldives. Connect with us on : Twitter @Uthema_MV Instagram Uthema_MV Let's start a conversation!

When we enable those who undermine the rights of women and girls anywhere, the whole society regresses.
Let us embrace every opportunity to learn and correct course to protect our human values and humanity.
We call on all authorities in the Maldives to act without delay to fulfil the State’s legal and social responsibility to protect the basic rights of women and girls to safety, security, human dignity, free from violence in any form.

Two years later, the situation remains the same or perhaps has worsened for women and girls in our community.

Whilst we celebrate Children’s day we are also reminded of the grim numbers of sexual violence cases against children, especially girls each month and day. True justice for survivors of violence is not putting perpetrators in jail - but, it is to change the harmful norms in our society to create it more safe and tolerant. We demand such advocacy and activism from
all stakeholders and communities in the Maldives.

Ramadan can be challenging when you have to deal with work and household duties while you’re fasting. Practice kindness as much as you can.

🌟“And live with them in kindness. For if you dislike them – perhaps you dislike a thing and Allah makes therein much good.” Quran 4:19

#WorldHealthDay spotlights the climate crisis as the biggest threat to human life & #health. The climate emergency hinders progress in achieving sexual and reproductive health and rights for all. @UNFPA ensures the #wellbeing of the most vulnerable on our planet

We wish all Maldivians and muslims around the world a blessed and fulfilling Ramadan - with love, peace and abundance. #HappyRoadha #ރޯދަމަސް
