International Women and Mining Network - RIMM

The mission of International Women and Mining Network - RIMM (Red Internacional Mujeres y Mineria) is to make visible the serious problems of women in mining across countries, governments, NGO’s, human rights groups, trade unions, mining struggle groups and communities and others concerned with the exploitation of women in mining and to stand as a strong global platform to fight for women’s rights and gender justice vis-a-vis mining.

The International Women and Mining Network is the only international platform which works for and brings together women affected by mining projects, as well as women mine workers exploited by mining operations.

Their objectives include to stand as a strong global platform to fight for women's rights vis-à-vis mining; to provide an opportunity to bring together women across the world to share their experiences as mine workers, women suffering and affected by mining and women concerned with mining; and to represent the voices, complaints and violations of women affected by mining at global forums, trade unions, national and local governments, civil societies and international human rights organizations
