Toolkit for Advocating Women's Rights in 7 Steps

10.10.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Developed by the Center of Arab Women for Training and Research - CAWTAR, this toolkit has been an opportunity to combine long-term theoretical and practical experience in advocacy, especially in gender issues, with lessons learned from the field and its changing realities and challenges. These learned lessons resulted from different projects, particularly from the CSO WINS Project “Capacity building in the Southern Mediterranean to open policy dialogue and monitoring for women in society” funded by the European Union and coordinated by the European Institute of the Mediterranean – IEMed whiting the framework of the actions of the Euro - Mediterranean Women’s Foundation – FFEM.

The toolkit was tested in Tunisia in March 2018 through a training program with associations preparing advocacy campaigns in several regions.

It was first published in October 2018, then revised and published in its French and Arabic versions in May 2019.
