“HerStory”: New publication about indigenous women by our partner AIPP
In the publication “HerStory of Empowerment, Leadership and Justice” 18 indigenous women share their stories. These stories echo the realities on the ground for indigenous women and the actions of the 18 women are inspiring reflections of what can be done.
In the introduction to the publication the Secretary General of AIPP, Joan Carling states: ‘The indigenous women’s voices and “her stories”, as an integral part of the women’s movement and indigenous peoples’ movement, remain faint. This reflects the overall conditions of indigenous women as relatively more marginalized, discriminated against and dis-empowered at all levels. It also illustrates the urgent need to strengthen indigenous women’s organizations and institutions, as well as their leadership and effective participation, in all matters that concern them as women and as indigenous peoples.’ Through the personal stories in “HerStory” it is the aspiration to empower indigenous women to seek justice, equality and dignity.
