Our August E-Bulletin starts with an inspiring quote by Graça Machel, a Renowned Global Leader and Elder,“There’s not anything you achieve as individuals; you achieve within a context of building on strengths of other people around you”.
As FEMNET we have continued to build on the strength of our members, partners, friends and colleagues in our mission of mobilizing African women for achievement of gender equality and the realization of women’s and girls’ rights at all levels. Thank you for your support and contribution!
Beginning September 2014, we will introduce a new segment in our monthly E-bulletin called ‘FEMNET Voices’ to profile FEMNET members and the great work they are doing in their countries. This is aimed at sharing our best practices and strategies as well as celebrating each other and documenting our gains and challenges in this journey. To be included in subsequent months, please send us a brief on what you are working on, highlighting successes and lessons learnt, emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com by the 20th of each month.
Now click on the August E-Bulletin and read more on Sara Longwe’s blog Failure of 50/50 Female Representation in Zambian Parliament as well as Homa Mungapen’s reflections and thoughts at the US/Africa Summit in DC plus more regional and global news, including the deadly ebola outbreak and why more women are affected.[download id=”2571″]
