Women's Voices Unite for Change in Congo

The Democratic Republic of Congo was recently dubbed 'a never-ending nightmare' by the New York Times, but over 200 Congolese grassroots women leaders—self-identified as the Maman Shujaa, or 'Hero Women'—have emerged from the shadows to organize a movement denouncing violence and demanding peace. They have utilized our platform to request a voice in the decisions that affect their lives, and the world is taking notice.

As the 20th African Union Summit kicks off this week, with Hero Women Neema Namadamu and Jeanette Ruhebuza taking their seats at the summit table, we invite you to experience their journey, grasp their vision, and meet the new faces of Congo. Read More »

World Pulse Correspondent Neema Namadamu and our community of Congolese women who call themselves the Mama Shujaa ('Hero Women' in Swahili) are calling on you and women leaders at the White House—Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett, and Michelle Obama—to take immediate action in solidarity with the women of the Congo.
