With the aim of addressing the challenges faced by women movements in Tanzania, participants collectively reflected and analyzed the state of the women’s movement including its feminist movement strength and weaknesses, shared strategies to tackle the challenges for movement building and concrete themes for more in-depth analysis and more fora to follow in 2019.

The forum plans to create a continuous safe space where women activists can reflect on the key issues regarding gender equality, Women and girl’s rights in Tanzania so as to build a feminist movement to effect a positive change for women and girls.
