Individuals at Risk
Woza (Women of Zimbabwe Arise)
Jenni Williams is one of the activists that we have supported through the network. Jenni is the founder of Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA), which stands up for the rights and freedoms of ordinary Zimbabweans. Jenni has been beaten, harassed and arrested over 50 times in the course of her work. She sees Amnesty International as her 'big sister' for the role we play in supporting her and her fellow WOZA members. At times, this support can make all the difference.
“Phoning the police, faxing a protest, signing a postcard; all these things make a difference because they send a clear message... I believe that the phone calls to the police in Zimbabwe during my arrest saved me from torture and rape.”
