This book, published with Solidar and local partners, aims to define the main challenges in promoting women’s rights and gender equality in times of transition within MENA region. The contributions written by local experts offer a detailed overview of the achievements, challenges and future prospects of progressive women’s organisations and movements in the region since the Arab Spring.

It was first presented during a fact-finding mission to the European Institutions, bringing together women’s movements from the region with Members of the European Parliament as well as the European Commission, the European External Action Service, the European Endowment for Democracy, the International Labour Organisation and United Nations representatives.

Together, we will need to remain persistent in our fight for a more equal society, in which women and men can rely on their economic, social and cultural rights.
