Animated Video Production

Background:

EuroMed Feminist Initiative (EFI) is a policy network that encompasses women’s rights organizations from the two shores of the Mediterranean and advocates for gender equality and women’s rights as inseparable from democracy building and citizenship, for political solutions to all conflicts, and for the right of peoples to self-determination. EFI seeks to improve and promote women’s rights as universal human rights, the value of gender equality and the use of non-violent means to solve conflicts. Our criterion and position align with the international resolutions and conventions and regional instruments promoting the universality of women’s rights and strengthening women's impact and voices in conflict resolution. 

Political transitions are an opportunity to shed light on women’s rights and gender equality in order to correct the historical exclusion of women from the political sphere. Protecting women’s rights, gender equality, and the principle of non-discrimination based on gender in constitutions recognizes women’s equal status and enables legislative changes addressing the existing discrimination.

In this context, and throughout the years of successful project implementation, EFI has developed important tools such as the “ABC for a gender-sensitive constitution”, a guide that aims to provide a feminist perspective on democratic constitution making in a systematic and accessible way. It answers the questions of how and why a constitution that is inclusive of women's rights and gender equality is needed. The guide is the result of a fruitful collaboration between EFI, researchers and activists from Syria, Europe and the Maghreb. It combines academic research and constitutional expertise with a feminist theoretic approach, enriched by the experiences of the women’s rights activists in the Euromed region and examples from different constitutions and processes across the world.
