Mission and objectives

The Libya Women’s Forum is a women's alliance and non-governmental organization. The forum was established in September 2011 with the approval of the local council in Zawya and was officially registered in the Ministry of Culture and Civil Society on 26/3/2012.
The forum focuses on the importance and advantages of the role of women and civil society, as well as conducting field research to strengthen gender concepts and achieve sustainable development. The Forum focuses on analyzing and eliminating the factors that contribute to the exclusion of women. The Forum targets:
• Female prisoners who are marginalized by the society who also rejects them regardless of the reason for their imprisonment.
• Internally displaced families.
• Poor and uneducated women, whether in rural or marginalized neighborhoods, by developing their potential and helping them to establish small enterprises to generate income and participate in local development.
• Educated women by contributing to their inclusion in the labour market.
The Libyan Women's Forum seeks to bring about societal change for building democratic society based on social justice.
