Feminist Advocacy refers to what and how we advocate for social, economic and political equality. The AAC has developed a feminist advocacy capacity strengthening programme for feminists and gender justice activists working in Africa. The Feminist Advocacy Capacity Strengthening Programme is a tailor-made capacity strengthening approach intended for feminist advocacy organisations from across the continent.
The programme is carefully designed to optimize peer learning and leverage the skills and experience of feminist activists and advocates within each training cohort. The approach includes a blended feminist advocacy training curriculum, mentoring and coaching. Additionally, the values-based advocacy capacity strengthening leverages the opportunity to achieve real systemic change by catalysing opportunities that currently exist to solve crucial social and environmental problems.
The AAC approach is to connect advocates who are engaged in feminist advocacy – providing a platform where experiences and resources can be shared and discussion about tools, tactics and strategies build on the discourse around Feminist Advocacy.
