Our Vision; “A Just South Sudan, where Respect, Protection and Promotion women’s Dignity and Rights is observed’’

Presence in: South Sudan
Focus: Women's Rights
Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA) South Sudan is a feminist organization founded in 2010 by South Sudanese women lawyers association. The organization was formed as a result of the need to have an institution focusing on women’s rights beyond a developmental framework. This was arrived at a discussion through which the women lawyers discovered that the existence of negative social and cultural practices prevented women from fully participating in public life and in the development of their communities; and also increased their vulnerability to Gender Based Violence.
