About Favilek

Fanm Viktim Leve Kanpe (Women Victims Get Up Stand Up) known as FAVILEK is an organization of over 80 women who were victim to political violence during the years of military dictatorship in Haiti that followed the coup d'etat of September 1991. Since 1993, FAVILEK has organized and mobilized for justice and reparations for crimes such as rape, torture, the loss of spouse, child, or parent or imprisonment suffered at the hands of the paramilitary and military. While FAVILEK is pushing forward the legal case against the former members and leaders of the paramilitary and military, it also works to reach out to other women who were victims of political violence across Haiti via their original theater piece "Ochan pou tout fanm yo bliye" (Tribute to all forgotten women). Through dialogue, monologue, movement, drumming and singing, FAVILEK members give graphic descriptions of abuses suffered under military rule, while sharing how they have struggled to come to terms with the aftermath. An especially poignant monologue tells the true-life story of a woman (performed by herself) raising a child conceived by rape. As a grassroots group of women from the poorest areas of Port au Prince, FAVILEK relies on limited resources and the medium of theater to inspire increased activism nationally and internationally to make justice a reality.
