“It was like a door that opened, a second chance at life”

Our partner organisation SIGI (Sisterhood Is Global Institute) provides legal support, case management services and mediation to women who are “administratively detained” in Jordan. To protect women who are believed to have “morally misbehaved” from being harmed by their family, women may be imprisoned in Jordan. Since the start of 2016, SIGI has helped negotiate the release of 36 such female prisoners.
