gender based violence
Violence against women remains embedded in our societies, both as a daily reality and a hallmark of crisis situations, perpetrated by State and non-State actors.
Count Me In
CREA is a part of the Count Me In! consortium (CMI) - a joint initiative with Mama Cash, Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID), Just Associates (JASS) and Urgent Action Fund representing Africa, the US and Latin America in strategic partnership with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs under the Policy Framework Dialogue and Dissent (2016-2020).
Laws, policies, restrictions
CREA uses various national, international and human rights mechanisms, laws and policies as tools for movement building and cross movement collaboration with a primary aim to strengthen multi-stakeholder accountability.
Early and forced marriage
Control and regulation of sexuality, in particular young women and girls’ sexuality, as a result of gender inequality exists in various cultural contexts and communities.
The challenges resulting from criminalization of sexuality and identity are gaining increased attention within the women’s rights, human rights and social justice communities.
