Women in search of citizenship

Experiences from West Africa


Ayesha Imam, Evelien Kamminga

This publication shares the experiences and knowledge generated in the context of the West Africa Gender Inclusive Citizenship (WAGIC) programme. Women’s and human rights organisations in Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso and Niger were strengthened and enabled to facilitate local women organising themselves to investigate rights violations, build voice, undertake collective action and claim their rights as citizens. Participatory action research was the main method utilised.
