The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation is one of the few that has supported the work of the Center for Women’s Rights from the very beginning.
We had the honor and pleasure to look back at our work through their prism and present our members, defenders of women’s human rights, first line responders.
“Rape as a weapon of war has always been a part of women’s history. In all wars they have been looked upon as one’s goods to be the target of destruction and humiliation.”
Duška Andrić was 28 years old when the war broke out in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Through her work in the then German non-governmental organization, she came to meet and work with women who survived rape during the war. Listening to their stories was a wake-up call for Duška – and the beginning of a lifelong commitment to women’s rights.
The will to create lasting changes is also what continues to guide Duška in her activism:
“If you expect big changes to happen in your life, then this is not the job for you. But you are laying the groundwork for the next generation. And this is the kind of change we want to achieve; changes that will last beyond us, not just while we’re here. ”
Thank you Kvinna till Kvinna for your support and trust!
