Since its establishment in 1988, the African Women’s Development and Communication Network (FEMNET) has played a leading role in building the women’s movement and amplifying the voices of African women to influence decisionsmade at national, regional and global levels, that impact on their lives.
The Women’s Major Group is a self-organised network with between 500 and 1000 organisations from over 100 countries, which continuously provides input into the global policy processes on Sustainable Development.
We are a membership-based alliance of feminist activists working across generations, constituencies, and identities seeking to realize sexual and reproductive justice for all.
The African Women’s Development Fund (AWDF) is a Pan-African grant making organisation that supports the realisation and fulfillment of African women’s rights through funding of autonomous women’s organisations on the continent.
