Partner Activities: Solidaritas Perempuan

The following is a list of activities relating to our partner Solidaritas Perempuan in Indonesia.

Solidaritas Perempuan - Aceh

Solidaritas Perempuan (Women’s Solidarity) was established on December 10th, 1990 with the aim of advocating for gender equality through the promotion of pluralism, anti-violence, ecological awareness, and just principles. In 1993, Solidaritas Perempuan was divided into 14 regional offices spread throughout Indonesia. The Aceh branch has launched a campaign to increase public awareness of the harm caused by the implementation of Shari’ah law, and to encourage policy change. Additionally, SP Aceh advocates the reform of local Shari’ah laws in order to address culturally justified violence. Through lobbying and increasing the capacity of stakeholders, SP Aceh is fighting to increase awareness of some of the harmful aspects of the relationship between religious laws and the rights of women.
