Welcome to Rehendhi

March 8, 2010

Greetings on the occasion of International Women’s Day. On this day we are pleased to launch the blog of Rehendhi, as part of our efforts to empower the women in Maldives.

Rehendhi is an underground feminist movement, led mostly by women, that fights against rising fundamentalism and the associated erosion of already scarce liberal attitudes towards women in our society. We reject overarching and untrue labels such as ‘Americanized’ or ‘Westernized.” We look at our own society and deduce that the suffering of women is directly linked to the strong patriarchal system that breeds harmful prejudices against women, such as their inferiority and servitude to men.

    Hello Rehendhi,

    Excellent initiative and greetings on the occasion of Women’s Day!

    How about creating an event for the month of March in relation to this day? Something that can make a difference with collective effort from all your members.

    Perhaps anonymous letters or notes from women that can be published here?
