Join us as we learn from incredible women
who have led successful movements for societal change.
At VOICE we know that where there are strong women’s movements, there is greater access to rights and resources for women. Women know exactly what they need, and are often the most effective change-agents in their communities. But the potential for women to drive these changes is often stifled by patriarchal institutions, cultures, and behaviors.
Feminist movement-building promotes feminist perspectives as the driving force of systemic change, with emphasis on women-led activism across issues and environments. Feminist movement-building is achieved by the mobilization and galvanization of women and girls into networks, organizations, and movements.
Through our very first panel discussion on the topic, VOICE is excited to discuss the feminist movement-building that has taken place in parts of Africa. We are speaking to some of the women who have been at the forefront of these successful, global, women-led movements. This panel discussion ultimately aims to understand how we can continue to push for feminist solutions, by means of creating, growing, and supporting women-led movements, in order to eradicate the multiple forms of violence women and girls face.
