Our Alliance
is the vehicle for bringing the Bonobo Sisterhood Principle into action.

The Bonobo Principle:
Nobody harms my sister.
Everybody is my sister.

"We can, should,  must and will, defend one another." 
DIANE ROSENFELD
Author of The Bonobo Sisterhood

Bonobos, our closest evolutionary cousins, have eliminated male sexual coercion. If a female is aggressed upon, she lets out a special cry and all other females within earshot come immediately to her defense. Women and our allies CAN DO the same, acting on The Bonobo Principle.

 

The Bonobo Sisterhood Alliance (BSA) envisions a world without intimate partner violence, without gender violence, without the coercive threat of violence against women, where all humans are free to achieve their worth and benefit from a society of collective care.    

Curious about our principles and the Bonobos?

Diane's book brings deeper insight!

THE BONOBO SISTERHOOD HARNESSES THE POWER OF THE #METOO MOVEMENT INTO A ROAD MAP FOR A NEW VISION OF EQUALITY AMONG HUMANS.

The Bonobo Sisterhood takes us through real-life stories from the courtroom to the classroom and beyond, charting a new vision of a collective self-defense among women and their allies. 

It offers an action plan accessible to everyone immediately. This is an open invitation to anyone who wants to challenge the status quo.
