CMP, Centro de la Mujer Peruana Flora Tristàn

The Centro de la Mujer Peruana (CMP) Flora Tristán is a feminist organization founded in 1979 as a non-profit civic association. Its goal is to promote the political rights and social equality of women, and thus the creation of a democratic society in which no one is discriminated against. To this end, CMP Flora Tristan works to strengthen women's political participation and freedom of expression, formulates and negotiates public policies and legal reforms, monitors government programs and administration for the achievement of strategic goals for women, and advises, especially in the area of gender violence and accompaniment of victims of sexual and gender violence, as the only non profit organization in Peru, the police and state women's shelters in the area of legal and psychosocial accompaniment of victims of human trafficking and sexual and gender violence.
