Kvinnorättsgruppen Uppsala / Women's Rights Group (KRG)

SVENSKA:
Kvinnorättsgruppen i Uppsala handlar om att stå upp för kvinnor och barn i kampen för männskligarättigheter. Vi är en öppen grupp där människor av alla åldrar, kön och bakgrund är välkomna och medlemmar är så aktiva som dom vill vara. Vad vi gör och hur vi arbetar beror på vilka medlemmar som är aktiva just här och nu.

Vi engagerar oss i Kvinnors Rättigheter genom att… …organisera lokala event för att öka medvetandet.
…arrangera filmkvällar och aktioner på stan.
…samordna föreläsningar om viktiga kvinnorättsfrågor.
…skriva brev för att påverka makthavare.
…stödja Amnesty’s internationella kampanjer.
…åtgärda DINA nya ideer!

Våra möten hålls på engelska eftersom vi har internationella medlemmar.

Som regel organiserar vi en event per månad och träffas varannan vecka. Gruppen i sig har inget krav på sina medlemmar, men att du delar Amnestys värdegrund och vill arbeta för opinionsbildning kring kvinnors rättigheter är en gemensam nämnare för alla våra medlemmar.

ENGLISH:
The Women's Rights Group is about standing up for women and children in the human rights arena. We are an open group where people of all ages, genders and backgrounds are welcome and members are as active as they want to be. What events and actions we do and how we work depends on which members are active here and now.

We engage ourselves in women’s rights issues through… …organizing local events to raise awareness.
…arranging film nights and actions downtown. …coordinating public lectures on important women's issues.
…coordinating letter writing campaigns.
…supporting Amnesty’s international campaigns.
…implementing YOUR new ideas!

We meet in English because we have international members.

In general we organize one event per month and meet every other week. The group does not have any requirements of members, but that you share Amnesty's core values and have a desire to work for women's rights is a common factor for all our members.

Women Refugees: Getting Lost in the Asylum Process - A lecture from Syster Karin of Alsike Kloster. »
21 november 2018 13:40

26 November 2018; 6:15-7:45 PM.
Free admission!

Location: Hörsal 1, Ekonomikum, Kyrkogårdsgatan 10A, Uppsala

A collaboration of UF Uppsala, Folkuniversitetet and Amnesty Kvinnorättsgrupp Uppsala.


Given that most asylum laws and international policies are still written by men, oftentimes the specific issues of female refugees are neglected. Many women flee their home countries for reasons different than men: ‘honor’ killings, domestic violence or escaping rape as a tool of war. Often these circumstances are not recognized by government policy as valid asylum reasons and women are sent back to face violence and death threats against themselves and their children. Sister Karin has experience with women from many different countries getting lost in the asylum process and will be their voice to help bring these issues to light.

Sister Karin Johansson is a nun living at Alsike Kloster, where for the past 40 years, they have been providing sanctuary to refugees. Hundreds of refugees have passed through the monastery through the years. Some stayed a few hours, some several years. Sister Karin and her fellow nuns have also advocated for refugee rights while turning their faith and compassion into a way of life. Everyday they share their home with men, women and children who are fleeing violence, persecution, looming threats and death. The sisters received the prize “Årets livsgärning” at the Svenska Hjälte-gala in 2014. In 2012 the sisters received the Nonviolence prize by the Christian Peace Movement. Sister Karin has appeared on TV, been a Sommarpratare on Radio P1, and has given several public lectures on the issues facing refugees.
