Founded by Nada Anid (co-founder of Women in Front), Madanyat seeks to achieve a balanced participation of women and men in politics and in the public sphere. Its founders are convinced that a diversity of voices will lead to a fairer, more inclusive and democratic society.
Its objectives are:
•Actively contribute to reaching gender equality in all designated and elected bodies
•Bring together women, youth and men from around the country willing to work for political, economic and social justice for all
•Advocate a new vision where politics is accessible to women and youth by working with all political parties, promoting electoral and other changes and raising awareness about the impact of women’s under-representation
•Spread art and culture as a vector of social cohesion, diversity and human rights.
•Conducting a National survey to understand why the lack of interest in politics is so widespread among women and what is the public perception about their role in public life
•Gathering women leaders from different backgrounds to initiate public discussions, by using solid communication tools. This initiative will reinforce the role of women in the consolidation of civil peace and their presence in negotiations and conflict resolution.
•Encouraging women and youth to take part in municipal and parliamentary elections
•Elaborating toolkits to act against sexism (harassment, defamation, discrimination, political violence) and establishing a charter of good practices to measure the commitment of public and private institutions toward equality
