Who We Are
A coalition of women from around the world fighting for the power to keep
The Women’s Coalition is an international organization dedicated to gaining women power to keep and protect their children after separation or divorce.
We are fighting for a future in which women are afforded justice in contested custody cases, and are able to maintain primary custody and protect their children if the father is abusive.
We pursue our mission by raising awareness of the custody crisis through social media and gathering troops to battle for the new Child Custody Court system, which will provide justice for women and safety and well-being for their children.
The Women’s Coalition was founded by Cindy Dumas, M.A., who has been researching, writing, and raising awareness about the custody crisis since 2003, when she discovered she did not have the power to keep custody or protect her children from their father.
Her son, Damon Dumas, is the Communications Director. He was forced by many judges over the course of ten years to live with the father who sexually abused him, despite his mother's and his own efforts to be able to live safely with his mother. He was only able to escape the control of the court and his father by getting married on paper at age 16.
