SSWEN intends to support the building of a South Sudanese women’s movement founded on feminist principles to promote social justice, gender equality, and pluralism. We implement strategies that tackle the underlying causes of discrimination against women and challenge the changing face of patriarchy.
In July 2016 SSWEN with support from UN Women trained a cadre of young, influential women rights activists on Transformational Leadership with an aim to build a movement of young feminists and bridge solidarity amongst a generation of young leaders.
In November 2009, the Sudanese Advocacy Networks (SAN) was successfully formed with coordination from SSWEN – US Chapter. This movement consists of 50 civil society organizations, with an aim to strengthen and empower Sudanese activists to advocate on issues that are facing the people of Sudan. The Network was a powerful multi-ethnic voice and inclusive international movement built to influence and transform lives in Sudan.
