Founded on March 21, 2004 by Etalemahu Taddesse Fikre, Ethiopian women's Organization was created as a nonprofit, nonpolitical, and non-religious 501(C)(3) organization that is located ​in the DFW metroplex committed to improving the lives of women. At the core of its work and approaches, we believe that achieving gender equality is essential for development, democracy, and progress. We believe that women are critical development actors and can be powerful catalysts for social change. They play vital care- giving roles to children, the aged, and the disadvantaged. They are often the keepers of culture and the mediators during conflict. Ethiopian Woman's Organization mobilizes women to achieve equality. Their equality is essential to building stronger families, communities, and societies. We envision a world in which women are able to fulfill their dreams free from the constraints of poverty and inequality and their full worth is realized and valued. We thrive to ensure that women control more resources and have a voice in decision making. As defined in our articles (by law) the Organization pursues the following specific objectives: ​


▪ The elimination of all forms of legally and traditionally sanctioned discrimination against women. 

▪ The ensuring of equal treatment of women with men in education, employment, access to public services and benefits.

▪ The advocacy of remedial and affirmative measures for women to redress accumulated consequences of discriminations.


Therefore, due to woman's disadvantageous position in society (eg. Financial dependence and society distorted concept of women dependence of a male protector), women are unable to stand up for their rights. It has been an ongoing struggle to overcome but we are dedicated to helping women to remove their pain and overwhelming fear so that they would be grounded and feel confident enough to step into their God-Given Potential. Our organization is focus on dealing with a lot of women issues especially in domestic violence. Abusers come in all shapes and sizes. They can be a male or female. They can be a parent or a spouse. No one knows what triggers an abuser to become hostile. It may be a memory of a past incident that they have experienced. It may be a chemical imbalance. Most of the time, an abuser will scream and shout and become demeaning because they have a sense defeat and the loss of control. They are always looking for approval because if you don't comply, there is always a price to pay.
