Women agains Violence WAV

Linked with Aida Touma-Suliman – Israel.

WAV’s Mission: We believe women should have full rights over their self and body and have the right for self-accomplishment and development. We condemn and reject all violence against women. We reject all laws that discriminate against women, and we seek to change social norms that treat women as “mere housewives” or “sexual objects.” WAV sees violence against women as a social problem practiced, legitimized and intensified by the traditions, norms and laws of society. The most extreme form of this is the murder of women which is justified by protecting the so-called “family honor.”

WAV’s Goals:

Exposing the problem of violence against women;
Establishing support services for women victims of violence;
Promoting the status of women within our community.
