Organisation details

Middle Eastern Women and Society Organisation

Organisation type: Voluntary or Community Sector

Middle Eastern Women and Society Organisation is a charity organisation aiming to support and empower Middle Eastern and North African women refugees or asylum seekers who have experienced or are experiencing gender discrimination, domestic violence, honour-related violence, war, forced and Child marriage, FGM, and trauma. We aim to help them rebuild their lives and integrate displaced women into society. We aim to defend women from violence and discrimination both at home and in the wider community.

MEWSO is a grass roots organisation started in 2010. The brainchild of a group of Middle Eastern women who experienced prejudice, domestic violence, trauma, Honour-related violence in families while witnessing forced marriages and Female Genital Mutilations within their communities, founding members analysed the nature of support and assistance available to victims and reached the conclusion that once the victim has received basic support provided by mainstream services and campaign groups, she is left on her own to rebuild her life amid underlying mental scars. Longer-term issues faced by culturally-isolated women in a new set-up leave her with little support to help cope with new situations.
