Booklet Final Version

The African Union (AU) embarked on a new chapter of moving forward the gender equality agenda in Africa, following the expressed commitment taken by Heads of State and Government on gender parity. In July 2004, the AU, under the leadership of Alpha Oumar Konaré, President of the AU Commission, adopted the Solemn Declaration on Gender Equality in Africa (SDGEA)at its Summit meeting in Addis Ababa.

For the first time in history, a continental organization took ownership of gender mainstreaming at the highest level, prioritizing issues such HIV/AIDS, the recruitment of child soldiers, and the implementation of gender-specific economic, social, and legal measures, amongst others. 

The Declaration calls for the continued implementation of gender parity in the AU and at national level, the ratification of the Protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa, and the protection of women against violence and discrimination.
