TERRE DES FEMMES (TDF) is a German non-profit women’s rights organisation. They are committed to ensuring that girls and women can live a free, safe, and self-determined life while holding equal and inalienable rights regarding all aspects of life. Their aim is to raise public awareness by means of education and advocacy, campaigning and lobbying, international networking, and individual personal assistance. They also promote a number of independent and local self-help projects abroad.
Based in Berlin (Germany) TDF deals with a big variety of subjects through its five focus areas: Female Genital Mutilation (FGM); Honour crimes; Domestic violence; Women trafficking, and Virginity myths. Their current activities include, among many others, the annual film festival “FrauenWelten” (Women’s Worlds) in Tübingen and the “Flag campaign”, a nationwide initiative on the 25th of November – the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
