FEMNET Consultancy - Baseline Study on Women’s Rights

FEMNET Consultancy - Baseline Study on Women’s Rights

Background

Since its establishment in 1988, the African Women’s Development and Communication
Network (FEMNET) has played a leading role in building the women’s movement and amplifying the voices of African women to influence decisions made at national, regional and global levels, that impact on their lives.

As a pan-African membership-based organization working to advance women’s rights, FEMNET continues to mobilize African women to hold governments accountable to women’s rights and gender equality commitments including: the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, the AU Protocol on the Rights of Women in Africa (Maputo Protocol) and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable
Development among others.

FEMNET’s vision is an African society where gender equality is achieved and women and
girls enjoy all their rights and live in dignity.

Our mantra is women’s rights are human
rights, and we exist to mobilize African women for the achievement of gender equality and
the realization of women’s and girls’ rights at all levels.

The Africa is rising narrative is exemplified by 6 out of 10 fastest growing economies being
African.

By contrast however, Africa is also home to one the world’s top 10 most unequal
societies.

Gender inequality alongside income inequality remains highest on the list of outcomes of Africa’s economic growth.
