Summary

Equality Now is partnering with CHIME FOR CHANGE to mobilize activists to drive progress in the Middle East and North Africa. We'll support these activists - especially young women activists - to advance legal change that promotes gender equality, particularly laws around child marriage, male guardianship, sexual violence and sexual harassment, and nationality and inheritance laws.

Challenge

In the Middle East and North Africa, we've seen significant backtracking on women's rights and increasing restrictions on women's rights groups and activists. Women in different parts of the Arab world don't enjoy the same rights and don't have the same experience or opportunity to organize and lobby for change. Equality Now will convene gender equality activists from across the region and help equip them with the tools and resources to engage in the legal reform that will impact their futures.

Solution

Equality Now will convene gender equality activists from across the region to share experiences and strategies. We will build their capacity to organize and advance legal change in their countries on wide-ranging gender equality issues, including ending child marriage, male guardianship, and sexual violence and sexual harassment. We will pay particular attention to supporting and promoting the activism of young women who are essential to the future of the women's rights movement.

Long-Term Impact

Equality Now works with grassroots partners around the world to ensure that laws treat men and women equally, prohibit all forms of violence against women and girls, and that women and girls have equal access to justice. We know that lasting change happens through supporting and promoting the activism of women and girls on the ground and by helping institutionalize equality in laws, policies and institutions.
