This is in line with FEMNET’s ten-year strategic plan (2020-2029) where FEMNET continues to focus on disrupting patriarchal power; nurturing innovative and powerful feminist spaces; re-politicizing the women’s right agenda; and invigorating constituency building and engagement. This includes robustly growing women and girls’ solidarity, voices, agency, and power to shape discourse, while countering regressive forces against gender equality and women’s empowerment. The strategic plan outlines five thematic focus areas: – (i) ending violence against women and girls; (ii) advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights; (iii) women’s transformative leadership; (iv)women’s economic justice and (v) climate justice and natural resource governance.
