Who We Are

Hawa Feminist Coalition is a non-governmental and non-profit feminist organization founded by young feminists in 2018 in Somalia as the first and only young women and girls-led organization grounded in principles of feminism that come out to promote the safety, equality, justice, rights, and dignity of young women and girls in Somalia in order to achieve a country where women and girls are valued as equal beings among members of the community, enjoy all their rights on an equal footing with others, and live in dignity.

We believe in the collective power of Somali young women and girls to work together toward achieving their rights. Join grassroots young feminists-led movement to build a broad and strong feminist movement for a just and sustainable future. No one can change history alone. We need you.

What We Do

Movement Building

We mobilize, organize and connect young women and girls in feminist solidarity to build a strong and visible young feminist movement that can promote the safety, equality, justice, rights, and dignity of young women and girls in Somalia.

Leadership Development & Empowerment

We build the leadership and advocacy capacity of young women and girls and their use of digital media and other innovative advocacy tools to improve their voice, agency, and active participation in decision-making processes in Somalia.

Awareness Rising & Advocacy

We use awareness-raising and artivism, including the use of art, dance, music, culture, and poetry, to challenge the prevailing gender-based violence as well as negative social norms and harmful beliefs against women and girls and also advocate the adoption of legal instruments for the protection of women and girls in Somalia.
