ISIS Women’s International Cross-Cultural Exchange

ISIS Women’s International Cross-Cultural Exchange (ISIS-WICCE) is a global action oriented women’s resource centre with the aim of promoting justice and women’s human rights through documentation of women’s realities and sharing of information and ideas to improve women’s status and overcome gender inequality. Since its relocation in Kampala, Uganda, it has focused on building women’s capacity in documentation, peace building and conflict resolution; and the use of information and communication technologies for networking, lobbying and advocacy. Like other women human rights defenders in Africa, it has been the subject of harassment from conservative forces in Uganda for its defense of women human rights. ISIS WICCE works with the WHRD IC in the development of a global situationer on the situation of women human rights defenders.
