FEMNET is a regional Pan African Feminist membership-based nongovernmental organization (NGO). It was set up in 1988 to share information, experiences, ideas and strategies among African women’s NGOs to strengthen the capacity of women to participate effectively in the development of the continent. This is done through advocacy, capacity building, communication and networking.  

Using data to engage regional and continental stakeholders  

FEMNET is recognized and respected across Africa and the world as a PanAfrican Feminist network that ensures that the voices of African women are amplified and their needs and aspirations are prioritized in key policy dialogues and outcomes.

Data has been instrumental in framing FEMNET’s contributions across regional and global spaces. 

 These spaces have included Women’s Affairs Ministers Meetings, Gender is My Agenda Campaign (GIMAC) meetings at the African Union, Regional Economic Communities engagements with the African Union, Commission on the Status of Women in 2022 (CSW66), and the 27th UN Climate Change Conference (COP27). They have addressed a wide range of issues including gender equality, women’s political participation, climate justice and economic justice. To inform speeches delivered by key policymakers, FEMNET has used data alongside demands and recommendations made by African women and girls themselves.
