In this Issue of the quarterly E-Bulletin, we highlight regional and global advocacy spaces we have monitored, influenced and co-created from the -> #FundHerAfrica calling for authentic resourcing of women’s rights organizations (and we laud the newly Canada-led innovative, multi-million-dollar and multi-sector funding mechanism) -> to the 31st AU Summit highlighting important linkages of conflict and fragility with violence against women, access to sexual and reproductive health and rights and financing for health – > to Community Dialogues in Kericho and Bomet (Kenya) to end sexual harassment and gender based violence – FEMNET has continued to be at the forefront of informing and mobilizing African women and girls to participate and influence policies and processes that affect their lives.
The E-Bulletin also captures an amazing analysis by young feminist Kalevera Imungu on why erasing the herstories of powerful women leaders must stop; and remember to check out the section on Calls to Action and E-Resources.
