Mission and objectives

The Egyptian Center for Women' s Rights is an independent, non-partisan and non-governmental organization. The Center is dedicated to supporting women in their struggle to research her full rights and establish gender equality. ECWR works on eliminating all forms of discrimination against women and urging legislative authorities to reconsider all legislations opposing women-related international agreements, at the top of which CEDAW. In this framework, ECWR, via its programs, is concerned with raising women' s awareness, emphasizing the necessity of women' s participation in public life- as an elector and nominee – and improving women legal knowledge. Such knowledge could be achieved through simplifying legal concepts so as to be capable of handling daily life issues and problems or filing lawsuits defending women and demanding their rights.
