History of RIMM: Red Internacional 'Mujeres y Mineria', or the International Women and Mining Network (RIMM), is the first and only platform that has brought women from different continents on this very serious issue of mining and gender justice.

Red Internacional 'Mujeres y Mineria', or the International Women and Mining Network (RIMM), is the first and only platform that has brought women from different continents on this very serious issue of mining and gender justice. The initiative taken by some of the groups like the Cordillera People's Alliance, Miningwatch, Cepromin and others since 1997 by organizing three international conferences to highlight the condition of women living and working in the mining regions and to identify the diverse problems that they are being confronted with under the new global economies, has led to the consolidation of the meetings into the International Women and Mining Network.

What started as an initiative to explore the gender concerns in mining took the role of a global platform for women exploited by mining projects either as communities displaced or as workers in highly exploitative working conditions.
