Background

This means enabling women to claim their social, economic and political rights; supporting the development of civil society, and the improvement of accountable, democratic governance; and supporting the improved resilience of those with vulnerable livelihoods due to climate change, insecurity and other risks.

 

Advancing gender justice will impact more poor and marginalized women.  Women will claim and advance their rights through the engagement and leadership of women and their organizations; and violence against women is significantly less socially acceptable and prevalent.  Oxfam seeks to work with partners, such as FEMNET to provide core support to women’s rights organisations to strengthen organizational capacity and sustainability of new or growing movements. This is through supporting alliance-building, including with civil society organizations; skills-building in advocacy and campaigning; risk analysis, transformative leadership and monitoring of complex change.

 

The overall objective of the ‘Feminist Movement Building Programme’ will be to contribute to FEMNET and Oxfam’ s Strategic plans which seek to realise gender equality and women’s empowerment in Africa through mobilising women’s rights organisations across the content to carry out joint advocacy and lobbying to influence gender related policies at the regional and country levels.

Both parts of this role will require close working with gender-justice colleagues in target countries, in the HECA Regional Platform – and with gender justice allies and programme colleagues across Oxfam globally.
