CMP, Centro de la Mujer Peruana Flora Tristàn
The Centro de la Mujer Peruana (CMP) Flora Tristán is a feminist organisation 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 programmes and administration for the achievement of strategic goals for women, and advises, particularly in the area of gender violence and accompaniment of victims of sexual and gender violence, as the only non-profit organisation 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.
CMP Flora Tristàn has consultative status with the UN and writes annual reports for them on the situation of women's rights in Peru. CMP Flora Tristan works on the following four fields of action: Women's Human Rights, Sexual and Civil Rights in Health, Feminist Research and Debates, and Rural Development:
With the support of Mission 21, CMP Flora Tristàn works to promote rural women in the department of Cusco. On the one hand, CMP Flora Tristan carries out educational work by holding various workshops on violence prevention in its many dimensions (psychological, physical and sexual violence, but also human trafficking). On the other hand, CMP Flora Tristan also works to empower women from rural Cusco in the field of sustainable agriculture and income generation. This latter focus of CMP Flora Tristan's work also has a strong focus on the empowerment of rural women in the context of climate change and water scarcity in the various strategic negotiation tables of the Cusco regional government.
