SAF focuses on human rights in general and women’s rights in particular, and lends support regardless of people’s political affiliation or ideology. SAF’s mandate stipulates the advocacy, lobby and defense of women’s human rights through concerted joint efforts of all to change discriminatory laws, policies and attitudes that hinder realization of women’s strategic interests and practical needs.
