Our Newsletter for this month reflects the awesome efforts of equality actors across the Euro-Mediterranean region starting from Palestine where young men and women are fighting against GBV through a series of training; passing by Lebanon where our members are conducting national and local campaigns reclaiming women’s civil and political rights; and ending in Jordan where Bedouin women are reviving Jordan’s craft heritage and promoting tourism.
In this issue we also invite to check our call for applications for the mobilization of local actors in favour of gender equality, a super interesting opportunity to advance women’s rights in your country if you’re from Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Palestine and Tunisia.
If you’re from the above – mentioned countries, then this issue brings you another opportunity, this time from South Med WiA who recently launched a call for proposal with the objective of supporting projects addressing weaknesses and issues related to gender equality and the under-representation of women in the audio-visual sector.
In its Turn, the Catalan Agency for Development Cooperation launched a call aiming at supporting non-profit associations working on development projects in Catalonia (Spain) or social movements in number of southern countries including Morocco, Senegal, Mozambique, and Colombia.
In our 13th issue, we bring you a new field diagnosis elaborated in partnership with Femmes en Communication with the objective of understanding the level and depth of violence against women Algeria, and in Oran in particular.
August newsletter also brings you our latest news and activities as well as those of our Network members.
