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 taking back women's power to keep and protect their children after separation or divorce - after 10,000 years of patriarchal entitlement and empowering of fathers to take children from their mothers and abuse them if they so chose.
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 children when the father is abusive.
We pursue our mission through raising awareness of the custody crisis through presentations and on social media, while uniting women to demand 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 Family Court's and his father's control by getting married on paper at age 16.
The Women's Coalition is a 501(c)3 nonprofit
