SOAWR’s Southern African Cluster has produced informative Factsheets on different issues under Article 14 of the Maputo Protocol.
In keeping with the aspirations and the character of the SOAWR Journal, this third edition provides a haven upon which the voices of millions of girls and women in Africa are amplified and where the voices of those who tirelessly fight for the cause of gender equality are raised and intensified. It is a space where we celebrate achievements, recognise struggles, and engage in thought-provoking conversations that inspire change.
