Community Leader Chris Crowstaff

Chris Crowstaff Founder of Safeworld for Women InternationalChris Crowstaff is a true visionary with the well being of all of her sisters worldwide at the heart of her everyday mission.

Chris says, “As the founder of Safe World for Women, I am committed to bringing together women and men who share our passion for a safer and more humane world.  We need to start by protecting the most vulnerable. Women and children still make up most of the world’s poor, most victims of war, most refugees and so it goes on. I truly believe that a Safe World for Women is a safe world for all”.

Safe World for Women is an award-winning, women-led advocacy organization and multicultural global movement for social justice and equality.

Chris Crowstaff with Safeworld for Women InternationalOn 2nd July 2013, Chris Crowstaff, founder of Safe World for Women, received a Katerva Award for the initiative to promote grassroots women’s groups.

The award was presented at the United Nations offices in Geneva by Ambassador Néstor Osorio of Colombia – President of the Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC).

Chris dedicated the award to women human rights defenders throughout the world, and particularly to Farida Afridi, co-founder of SAWERA, a grassroots organisation working for women’s rights and education in the tribal regions of Pakistan. Farida was tragically murdered on 4th July 2012, on her way to work at the SAWERA office in Peshawar.
