AFAD Celebrates the 2020 International Women’s Day

Manila: It can be argued that enforced disappearance (ED) might very well take on a woman’s face. This year the Asian Federation Against Involuntary Disappearances (AFAD) celebrates the International Women’s Day by remembering the collective and individual struggles of women family members of ED victims. These women who bear the burden of having a loved one disappeared are the icons of brave resistance and struggle for survival in the face of overwhelming psychological, social, cultural, and economic challenges.
