Women Chapter International (WCI) is an independent, non-governmental organization registered in Sweden in 2020.
WCI works closely together with civil society groups from different countries to raise human rights concerns at the international level and promote respect for the rights of vulnerable communities, especially HRDs and exiled HRDs. It focuses its activities on equality and human rights with special emphasis on gender-based violence, discrimination, human rights violation and sexual violence, and survivors' rehabilitation.
WCI is committed to promoting human rights worldwide. So it acts to empower local civil society groups who are working to advance the protection of human rights in their respective countries and assists them with necessary digital safety and security and advocacy training.
In cooperation with partner organizations, WCI aims to advocate on behalf of individuals and communities who are among those most vulnerable to discrimination, injustice and human rights violations.
Since its inception in June, 2020, WCI has researched and presented a series of events on the trans-generational effects of war-time sexual violence and aims to take its mission one step further by implementing the knowledge gained from these endeavours to intensive work in the field of support and rehabilitation of sexual violence survivors.
Women Chapter International(WCI) ended its second webinar on the 24th of April on the topic “Rwanda Testimonies of Trauma and Turmoil: Psychological Repercussions of Unresolved Trauma” with new ideas to help heal the transgenerational trauma of rape during wars and with the determination to transfer the stigma of rape where it belongs, with the perpetrators.
