NPRC, Women Safe Spaces :Delivering justice for women?

Heal Zimbabwe commends the NPRC’s initiative as it resonates with the organisation’s interventions that values women specific platforms through Women Safe Spaces for Reconciliation (WSSR).  Heal Zimbabwe’s experiences with WSSR is that creating safer spaces for women to narrate their experiences  of human rights violations ensures that their voices are heard and that justice is served. The spaces protect them from public humiliation, re-traumatisation and socio-cultural discrimination associated with exposure of personal conflict experiences. Therefore, this article provides more insights on the importance of Women Safe Spaces in healing and reconciliation processes while reflecting on Heal Zimbabwe’s experiences in working with women.
