KAIROS’ partners celebrate International Women’s Day in Colombia
In Colombia Women Continue Braiding for Life, Territory, and Peace
“Our political commitment as a women’s social movement…has as purpose our liberation as oppressed subjects as well as the continued demand for the protection of nature as a historical legacy that must continue to belong to our children.”
– Organización Femenina Popular (OFP), March 8, 2019
For International Women’s Day, members of the Organización Femenina Popular (OFP) travelled to Santander de Quilichao, Cauca in southwestern Colombia to partake in a national day of action for women’s rights. The mobilization was co-organized by the OFP, one of KAIROS’ partner organizations in the Women of Courage: Women, Peace, and Security program. Diverse women’s rights organizations gathered in Cauca to raise their voice as one to demand respect for life, defend territory, and call for a political solution to armed conflict.
Following are some photos from the OFP of the national day of action for women’s rights.
