From the FEMNET Secretariat, we wish you all a happy and prosperous 2015 – may we be partakers and givers of peace, love and unity, in all we do! We look forward to an exciting and busy year ahead as we endeavour to realise our vision for ‘An African society where gender equality is achieved and women and girls enjoy all their rights and live in dignity’. Guided by our core strategies of advocacy, communication, capacity building and institutional strengthening, we shall continue to actively follow, engage and participate in several key regional and global processes and much more! We will endeavour to keep you our members and partners informed through our various communication channels – these e-bulletins, website, listserv and social media – keep following us.
As always, our e-bulletins are full of news (including Tunisia’s signing of the Maputo Protocol), variousviewpoints, opportunities, vacancies, resources (including the newly launched 2014 African Women’s Decade Report) and much more.
