Network for Women’s Rights in Ghana (NETRIGHT)

About Us

The Network for Women’s Rights in Ghana (NETRIGHT) is a network of civil society organisations and individuals who have a clear interest in working together to bring a gender perspective into national processes and advocate for policy change to strengthen women’s human rights.

NETRIGHT aims to campaign for attitudinal and policy changes to achieve women’s equal rights and to draw attention to violations of women’s rights. It also aims to create space for debate, discussion and clearer articulation of different positions within the Ghana women’s movement on women’s rights issues, as well as other national issues.

To ensure inclusiveness, NETRIGHT provides a national advocacy platform for civil society organisations around national and international processes and educates the public about gender equality and women’s rights issues.

Our Thematic Areas

NETRIGHT’s operations are guided by feminist principles that explain women’s experience of subordination as historical and context specific and women’s organising to confront their issues as an important strategy for building gender equal societies. All leadership roles are held by women, even though the membership of the network includes men. Mobilising and activism form a core focus of the network.

NETRIGHT seeks at all times to multiply its mobilising platforms to expand its reach and enhance its impact. The network’s focus is women, an intentional bias, since it is clear from its work that women’s gender discrimination lies at the core of disadvantage in all global systems. It believes as a network that years of discrimination and oppression of women inhibits Ghana’s effort at national development.

The main thematic focus of the network as a result is economic justice for women although it also works in the areas of natural resource management and movement building.
