Mission and objectives

TWM is a feminist organization aims to research, report and advocate on the intersectional gender issues amongst indigenous groups, particularly Tamazight women in Libya.

TWM vision is to establish an academic and
social think/do tank on indigenous women
of Libya.

The core values of TWM are gender
equality, social justice and diversity of race,
class, ability, age, and ethnicity. These values are stemmed
from the current situation of women rights
in Libya and MENA regions, TWM values
are meant to challenge these inequalities
and injustices.

In 2016, TWM received a funding from the Canadian Fund for Local Initiatives, started the project “women’s participation in local governance and fighting gender based violence”, the project consisted of a capacity building training to female municipal members and civil society actors.
