Every year on March 8th, the world celebrates International Women’s Day to take stock of advances in women’s rights and progress towards gender equality.

The theme chosen for this year’s event was “Women’s leadership: for an egalitarian future in the world of COVID-19”. Thus, on March 8, 2021, all FEDEC staff participated in a round table discussion and reflection on this theme. What emerged from the presentations was that the restriction measures paralyzed the livelihoods of many African women and particularly Cameroonians.

This activity falls under the umbrella of the Foundation’s “gender policy”, developed in 2020 with the help of a volunteer from Cuso International.
