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.

To achieve a gender-equal sustainable tomorrow, much remains to be done. But with yesterday’s event to mark International Women’s Day, we saw a vision of hope and potential. With a little solidarity and support from within our community we can not only break the bias but also transform and get rid of the harmful norms in our society. Much thanks to all our partners and allies on this movement 🧡

International Labor Day 2022 #LaborDay2022

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 2

#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

📃 Musawah's Policy Brief #3 on ‘Ending Polygamy in Muslim Marriages’ is now available in Sinhala and Tamil, translated by Sri Lankan activists. Download here: http://bitly.com/musawahpb3 #FreeOurFamilyLaws

(3/3) The speakers will show how and why in Muslim contexts, it is necessary to engage with religion, and build from the convergences between human rights and religious principles in order to create the conditions for women’s empowerment along with full gender equality.

(2/3) Around the world, many women are discouraged or prohibited from working or engaging in public life outside the home. When they do, they earn less and still take on more household responsibilities than men.

(1/3) As part of #CSW66, join us in a webinar with trailblazing Muslim feminists showing the possibilities of egalitarian laws & practices within the family that lead to social & economic justice in society. Arabic interpretation available. Register here: http://bit.ly/csw-musawah

“As more women are represented in the decision-making tables, gender biases can be gradually eliminated and we can build more resilient communities”.

@anuahsa, Minister of @MoEnvmv in the Republic of Maldives explained how women experience #ClimateChange on #IWD2022.

"Indigenous women have been fighting #ClimateChange on the ground. Over the last 30 years they have found in their traditional knowledge concrete solutions ... for water access, medicine, food security - we have so many examples!"
