MEWSo’s services are not limited to social activities and advice sessions nor exclusive to Middle Eastern, North African, and Asian women in London. We have a number of active campaigns that challenge patriarchal and misogynistic practices around the world.
At MEWSo, we are passionate about tackling serious gender related injustices, such as issues around polygamy, hymenoplasty, insecure residency and discrimination against LGBT+ communities. These injustices continue to have a detrimental impact on the mental and physical health of women around the world, displaced or otherwise, and our aim is to ultimately help stamp out in UK society.
Our campaigns aim to not only advise those women affected, but also to educate them and the community that such practices and attitudes no longer have a place in today’s society. We hope to help educate relevant authorities, organisations and the Government on the best ways to tackle these issues in order to bring about the best possible results for our women in BAME communities.
