Title: Gender and Security in Africa
Authors: Okech, Awino
Keywords: Gender
Issue Date: 2016
Publisher: African Women's Development Fund
Abstract: "Women face different forms of insecurity on a daily basis across the African continent. These are informed by the nature of women's labour, work environment, sexual orientation and failure in service provision by the state, among others. This primer reflects on women's peace activism and gendered security in Africa. It explores the following interlinked questions: what factors drive women's peace activism? who are the major actors that women peace activists target? what are the key lessons that can be drawn from these interactions? This primer traces the evolution of debates and activism on gender and violence, highlights national, regional and international policy frameworks that have emerged out of this activism and draws on a few peacebuilding initiatives led by women's rights actors across the continent."
