Nalafem Collective, Aya Chebbi, Young Feminists Demand Action

Young feminists demand action ahead of UN equality summit

The Nala Feminist Collective led by Aya Chebbi, the first appointed Youth Special Envoy to the African Union, has drafted the Africa Young Women Beijing+25 Manifesto that will be presented to global leaders at the Generation Equality Forum.

It’s a global gathering for gender equality convened by UN Women and co-hosted by the governments of France and Mexico that is scheduled to hold in Paris from June 30 to July 2, 2021. 

The manifesto is a groundbreaking political document that sets out critical issues of concern for young African women and girls and makes demands for addressing them. 

It also provides a platform for the achievement of the Africa Union’s Agenda 2063 that aims to transform Africa into the global powerhouse of the future and the United Nations` Agenda 2030 for sustainable development (SDGs).

Aya Chebbi has been speaking to my colleague Adolphus Mawolo about this document.
