Basira is an Arabic word meaning ‘vision combining wisdom, reason and intellect’ and Basira’s vision is for a humane future where equality, security and coexistence are at its heart.
Basira carries the voice of voiceless women to the world and campaigns tirelessly for their full rights.
We believe that without equality and justice for women, true democracy and international security cannot be achieved, as they are the foundations of a peaceful and safe society.
Our approach is twofold:
~ Advocacy through community talks and film screenings which aim to spread awareness of the values of justice & equality that are fundamental to protecting the dignity of British Arab women
~ Affecting change by influencing parliamentarians to highlight the incompatibility of outdated religious council rulings upon women’s rights and the detrimental impact upon integration and community cohesion
