Who we are
We are a network of organizations and individuals from civil society that works for womenâ€™s empowerment and gender equality. Our network was promoted by the governments of Spain and Mozambique as a result of the Maputo Meeting of African and Spanish Women, which took place on the 7th and 8th March,2006.
Exchanging experiences. .. The network is a forum to exchange experiences, work together and build a true sisterhood of African and Spanish women and, hopefully in the future, women from other parts of the world.
Strengthening the links between partner institutions â€¦ The network is a space where all the institutions, organizations, and individual men and women fighting for womenâ€™s rights can work together.
Working in key womenâ€™s issues...We work where women say it is important to work! The network fights for womenâ€™s human rights and to improve womenâ€™s condition in Africa and Spain; it promotes peace, democracy and the full exercise of citizenship by women through their participation in public life. It promotes actions to facilitate womenâ€™s access to education and health, and to fight AIDS and gender-based violence. We promote a process of gender equitable economic development which recognizes the economic needs, rights and contributions of women.
Giving voice to womenâ€¦We are, first and foremost, a space for reflection, discussion and dialogue around womenâ€™s issues in Africa and the world over.
