Feminist United Allies Sierra Leone

Feminist United is a social movement of young Sierra Leoneans with the collective goal of inspiring equality. They aim to achieve a society that makes gender equality and empowerment central. The movement consists of social change actors who recognise the vast gender inequality in Sierra Leone. As a revolutionary movement, Feminist United Allies has sparked conversations around feminism in Sierra Leone through social-media sensitisations highlighting sexism and its enduring hindrance to equality. Psychosocial support and mental health awareness are integral to their work and they seek to target community stakeholders as well as parents in relation to Sexual and Gender Based Violence (SGBV). They also aim to create a safe platform for victims to freely speak up and share their experiences within communities in the Western Area of Sierra Leone.
