The goal of this report is to highlight the efforts of multilateral and bilateral agencies to support African women in their valiant struggles. It describes projects and programmes based on the strategic objectives of the Beijing Platform for Action and shows how that document is linked to the other instruments and declarations that are now available. It calls on the nations of Africa to continue to implement the laws and declarations that have been passed by regional and national entities, and to ratify the Protocol on Women’s Rights. It reminds all of us engaged in development and human rights work to support the efforts of women in Africa to reshape their continent and achieve the Millennium Development Goals.
