Women’s Security Index Coalition

This coalition of feminist organisations advocates a broad definition of security that includes safety from all forms of violence with the aim of replacing the state's definition of security, which is based on militarism and state-sponsored violence. WSIC has created the Women’s Security Index, an annual survey among Jewish, Palestinian, Russian-speaking and other migrant women, as well as lesbian, queer and disabled women. The Index gathers data on how women experience security and is used by the coalition for policy advocacy.
