Welcome to Women Against Rape and the All African Women’s Group‘s Refuge from Rape & Destitution campaign. We are part of Global Women Against Deportations (GWAD).

OUR DEMANDS

  • Stop the horrific injustice women face in the asylum system
  • End government imposed destitution that they and their children suffer.

WHAT WE DO

  • Publish self-help tools to understand and pursue “Legal cases“.
  • Run collective self-help sessions and provide ongoing support for women to keep fighting and win their cases.
  • Pursue strategic legal challenges against the injustices that women seeking asylum from rape and domestic violence face.
  • Campaign against the hostile environment, destitution, detention and deportations – including so-called “voluntary return”.
  • Provide women with a platform to provide their first hand experiences to the public and demand concrete changes about how they are treated.

WHAT’S ACHIEVED

  • Women have had a 100% success rate at appeal over the past five years.
  • Many other victories of all kinds have been won.
