We understand that reporting on these topics is a difficult task, and we appreciate the media’s commitment to doing so with integrity. We strongly condemn the arbitrary arrest of these journalists and call for authorities to stop attempts to charge them although that reporting GBV is not a crime.
Very Sad! A body of young girl horrifically murdered was found lying on Bosaso street. The young girl seems to be raped and then murdered with her face beaten terribly, but still the exact cause of her death is yet to be determined and no one has been arrested for. We strongly condemn this horrifying act and call the government for immediate investigation and bring perpetrators to the justice.
Women of the World Foundations celebrates 2020’s International Day of the Girl and is bringing together 40 young activists from around the world to build a community and share knowledge. In this year, one of our members Ms. Mariam M Hussein is listed at WOW’s Young Leaders Directory and participates in the event.
Mariam is a feminist activist advocating for the safety, equality, justice, rights and dignity of young women and girls in Somalia where women bear an unequal brunt of hardships occasioned by poverty, conflict and clan-based culture which promotes strict male hierarchy and authority. Mariam is an active member of Hawa Feminist Coalition, young feminists movement in Somalia.
Join us!, If you are a young girl under the age of 35 years, interesting to be part of collective feminist movement working to promote the safety, equality, justice, rights and dignity of girls and young women in Somalia.
