Women of Zimbabwe Arise

Women of Zimbabwe Arise

Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA) is a passive-resistance civil society project working for political change in Zimbabwe. Their members face imprisonment and physical abuse, but continue to practise non-violent resistance. In one of their regular passive resistance demonstrations, which takes place on Valentines Day, they hand out roses to members of the public. Jenni Williams and Magodonga Mahlangu, who lead WOZA, were recently awarded the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights award in recognition of their outstanding work in Zimbabwe.
