WoMin


Actor: NGO | Region: Africa

WoMin, an alliance of organisations that span the African continent, works alongside national and regional movements and popular organisations of women, mining impacted communities and peasants, and their solidarity partners, to make visible the impacts of extractivism on peasant and working class women. Together with partners situated from the local to the international, WoMin works to counter the destructive impacts of extractivism such as land grabbing and displacement of communities, pollution and erosion, and violence against women, and, critically, to advance a women-centred and just development alternative.

“GAGGA is a critical global alliance of organisations and movements working on the new front of women’s rights and environmental justice. We see this as such an important learning and advocacy space, bringing local women’s struggles to a worldwide audience.”

    Acteur : ONG | Région : Afrique

    WoMin est une alliance d’organisations originaires du continent africain tout entier, qui accompagne les mouvements nationaux et régionaux et les organisations populaires de femmes, de communautés affectées par l’activité des mines et de paysans, ainsi que leurs partenaires solidaires, dans leurs efforts de donner visibilité aux impacts de l’extractivisme sur la vie des paysans et des femmes de la classe ouvrière. Avec l’aide de ses partenaires, aussi bien locaux qu’internationaux, WoMin s’efforce de contrer les impacts destructeurs de l’extractivisme, telle que la confiscation des terres et le déplacement de communautés, la pollution et l’érosion, ainsi que les violences faites aux femmes. Il s’agit également de mettre en avant des alternatives de développement justes et axées sur les femmes.

    « La GAGGA est une alliance mondiale d’organisations et de mouvements qui agit sur le nouveau front des droits des femmes et de la justice environnementale. Il s’agit pour nous d’un apprentissage important et d’un espace de plaidoyer qui permet de porter les luttes des femmes sur la scène mondiale. »
