Faidah Suleiman, Police Officer and Gender Specialist

Faidah Suleiman, Police Officer and Gender Specialist

We are now just one month away from the beginning of the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-based Violence, marked annually around the world under the theme of “Orange the World”.  As we get closer to the Days of Activism, we are inspired by stories of those working daily to raise awareness and prevent violence against women and girls. 

One such human rights defender is Faidah Suleiman, Superintendent of Police, Gender and Children’s Desk in Tanzania, and member of the national Female Police Network.  She shares, “Being a police officer and being a gender specialist enabled me to help not only my mother, but others in my family too. … I’m proud that through my job I’m making changes in my family and in the society.”
