The Economic Governance documentary was produced by FEMNET with support from Trust Africa. It highlights some of the challenges African women traders experience (especially Kenya, Egypt, Zambia, Rwanda & Uganda). It also captures some the best practices that gender lobby groups or governments at regional and national levels are using to successfully mainstream gender in trade arrangements as well as the gaps that hinder mainstreaming of gender in trade agreements.
SOAWR coalition organization and others are working to ensure that the Protocol remains on the agenda of policy makers and to urge all African leaders to safeguard the rights of women through its ratification and implementation. These organizations give visibility to both progress as well as violations of the rights enshrined therein.
A study was conducted by SOAWR across the 22 African member states who have not ratified the AU Protocol on the Rights of Women, with strong emphasis on 10 focus countries with the aim of analyzing and mapping out country by country.
