AMwA’s Advocacy training on Sexual and Reproductive and Reproductive Health and Rights (SRHR) is a 4 weeks long online training, whose overarching goal is to activate and deploy a bold and progressive cross-border feminist movement on sexual and reproductive health and rights. This training is intended to catalyse action on progressive SRHR for inclusive and universal access. The training looks to explore and develop alternative forms of organizing and movement building for African Feminists to influence and disrupt the process of negotiation over women’s bodily autonomy and sexual and reproductive health rights in traditional decision making spaces, at the national, regional and international level using the occasion of commemoration of 25 years of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. This is intended to centre SRHR issues that are on the margins while using feminist tools of analysis to highlight the dichotomy and tension between the depoliticized development agenda in traditional decision making spaces and feminists’ demand for dismantling of structural systems of oppression for the transformation of women’s lives.
This training is open to ONLY alumnae of AMwA’s African Women’s Leadership Institute (AWLI) across Africa.
