FEMNET Consultant Jobs in Kenya

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.

spaces, processes and instruments at sub-regional, continental and global levels to pursue this agenda.
