Call for a New Executive DirectorSeptember 13, 2019
In partnership with Women In International Security Global and Affiliates worldwide, WIIS Canada offers the following statement - in solidarity:
NIGERIAN GIRLS: WHY WE CARE
Not only because of the individual tragedies of these girls and their families,
Not only because of the very real risk they might end up as sex slaves including in Europe, and other parts of the world
Not only because they might not make it and die before there is any rescue,
Not only because other girls might suffer a similar fate,
Not only because parents are scared to send their daughters to school,
Not only because their abduction proves they have been failed by the very
state that is meant to protect them,
Not only because this might mean that a girl's life is worthless...
But also because each time a girl is targeted, her voice is silenced, society loses a degree of humanity and the world becomes less safe, not only locally, but for all of us.
WIIS - women for a safer world.
