Concept of MONFEMNET

Only a decentralized strategy, visionary, participatory, multi-stakeholder based national movement can bring about a fundamental change in all areas of society that is necessary to build a gender-equitable system and a friendly society.

Society cannot be democratic and humane without women’s human rights, freedoms, gender equality and equality. On the other hand, only in a democratic and humane society can fully guarantee women’s human rights, freedoms, gender equality and social justice.

Proper, sustainable and humane development is possible only with equal participation of women, strong civil society and democratic governance. Development is measured not only by economic and income levels, but also by the development of individual capabilities, choices, capabilities, power, and self-reliance.

Human rights, freedoms, equality and equality for men, women, girls and boys cannot be guaranteed in an inequality gender system which is based on patriarchy. Therefore, it is necessary to break the patriarchal attitudes, beliefs and structures that permeate all spheres of politics, society, economy and culture, and to build a system that is gender-equitable, humane and respects human rights and freedoms.

This movement to revolutionize society is a long-term process that consists of changes in people’s daily lives, attitudes, behaviors, socio-cultural changes, political and economic systems, and policies.

From now on, it is important to involve children and young people in this movement and to make them more aware of gender justice, human rights, freedoms, civil rights and responsibilities without delay.
