Mothers’ voices, mothers’ lives

On October 10th we’ll be outside the Eighth Hague Special Commission meeting,  handing out a copy of our Hague Mothers’ booklet to the 100+ delegates as they arrive. We will be asking them to work with us to end the abuse and heartache suffered by mothers and children whose only crime is ‘being a victim of domestic violence in a foreign country’.
It is dedicated to loving mothers across the world whose lives have been decimated by the Hague Abduction Convention. 
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed.

The Hague Mothers Campaign

Hague Mothers is a FiLiA legacy project. Our overarching aim is to end the injustices created by The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, specifically for mothers and children who are fleeing abusive relationships. Our initial focus is on the UK, USA and Australia.

A FiLiA Legacy Project

FiLiA is an UK-based woman-led volunteer organisation with international reach and part of the Women’s Liberation Movement. Our vision is a world free from patriarchy where all women and girls are liberated. Our mission is to (1) Build sisterhood & solidarity (locally, nationally, globally) (2) Amplify the voices of women (particularly those less often heard or purposefully silenced) (3) Defend women’s human rights. Our volunteer team has organised a Feminist conference since 2013.
