We appreciate your continued support and solidarity in living-out our vision of “An African society where gender equality is achieved and women and girls enjoy all their rights and live in dignity. Since it’s a journey we cannot claim to have ‘reached’, but we are convinced that the choices we have being making every day continues to propel us towards its realization! Chellis Glendinnin, a social-change activist reminds us that “If we cannot envision the world we would like to live in, we cannot work towards its creation. If we cannot place ourselves in it in our imagination, we will not believe it is possible.”
In our last Issue of 2014 E-Bulletins, we profile Jane Anyango, one of our members who is an activist, a mentor and who thoughtfully reminds us that “…until all of us have made it, none of us have made it.” During the 2014 Men’s Travelling Conference (MTC), held to commemorate the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender Based Violence, FEMNET’s Regional Men to Men Programme reached out to 100,000+ men, women, girls and boys spread out in 17 counties in Kenya with one clear message ‘Quality Men Use their Power to Prevent Violence Against Women and Girls’.
