Associação da Mulher Rural (AMRU)-Mozambique

Women

Associação da Mulher Rural (AMRU) was established in 1993 as a way to join forces and efforts of institutions working for women's rights, to give a strong response to anything that is contrary to women's development and full enjoyment of their rights as citizens of this country. The Forum recognized early on that the Mozambican women, like most women on the planet, has been discriminated in all sectors of society and still suffering the effects of the unjust international economic order and the model of structural adjustment, compounded by the state of the country, victim of a protracted war and cyclical natural disasters.
