Generation Equality and Economic Justice and Rights
The year 2020 will mark a milestone moment for accelerating the implementation of global commitments to gender equality. It will be the 25th anniversary of the Fourth World Conference on Women and the adoption of its landmark outcome, the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action (Beijing Platform for Action), a visionary agenda that set out how to remove the systemic barriers that hold women back from equal participation in all areas of life, whether in public or private. FEMNET was chosen to lead the action coalition on Economic Justice and Rights.
This episode, Crystal Simeoni, Director at Nawi: Afrifem Macroeconomics Collective is in conversation with Memory Kachambwa of FEMNET to discuss why this is important, gaps and opportunities for the African women’s movement.
