#Lifeinleggings (n.)

1). A Call to Action to End Violence Against Women and Girls in the Caribbean and the diaspora.

2). A safe space where Caribbean Women and Girls can document the types of abuse they experience.

We are a regional organisation, based in Barbados, that is committed to dismantling the rape culture in the Caribbean through advocacy, education, empowerment and community outreach.

We are survivor-focused, grounded in intersectional feminist principles and building upon the work of our Caribbean feminist foremothers to create a gender-just region.
