Our Herstory




Over the years, FEMNET has been able to inform and mobilize her members and partners of and around key issues of concern to our core agenda of realizing gender equality and the rights and empowerment of women and girls in Africa. This has enabled and facilitated collective participation in and influence of key decisions, policies and practices from local to global levels.


 “Our vision is that we the African women will reclaim, reconstruct and transform Africa, on the basis of gender equality, giving credence to the principles of democracy and human rights; mobilizing and utilizing human and other resources; and take our rightful place in the global arena, on the basis of equality with other nations, from now into the future, in partnership with our men, girls and boys.”

-A statement read by FEMNET at the Beijing Conference in 1995-
