MEWSo

. . . supports Middle Eastern, North African and Asian women in London to rebuild their lives. We reject every form of discrimination, inequality, and exclusion and aspire to a society where every woman lives in safety with equal opportunities. We hope for a society in which diversity is considered an element of strength and not of division. The Middle Eastern Women and Society organisation is built on the values of secularism, solidarity, and social justice.

We aim to defend and protect women from violence both at home and in the wider community.
