Karama’ is the Arabic word for dignity, as well as a growing movement, fueled by a coalition of national, regional, and international partners, to end violence against women and to promote their full and equal participation in the Middle East and North Africa.
Karama puts emphasis on women from the ground up, addressing violence as they define it, with solutions of their own design, to ensure their rights, safety, security, and protection.
