FEMNET stands out as a visible and credible pan-African women’s rights organization which asserts influence at strategic regional and global levels. Set up in 1988, FEMNET is one of the strongest African networks that has successfully mobilized and connected women within and beyond Africa. Its push for laws and policies at national, regional and international levels has placed the women’s movement at the centre of development discourse that includes women’s rights and gender equality. Over the years, it has developed innovative programmes and approaches that facilitate: empowerment of women in different realms; development of leadership among young women; partnership with men; and generation of authoritative and inspiring knowledge products. It operates as a meso-level CSO that interfaces community and national level women’s concerns with global level processes through a regional platform.
