Women's Rights





Our Work


Right For Education’s aim is to challenge the social attitude towards women and their role in sub-Saharan Africa. Most African countries have gender neutral laws. In practice, tradition and cultural norms, however have resulted in the limited implementation of human rights.

Reaching over 3 million people, we published material aimed at male, female and mixed audiences. Despite the gender disparities in mobile phone ownership and internet usage, 33% of Right For Education’s followers are female. Right For Education has created a safe community where people are free to express themselves. This has given invaluable insight into the social causes of gender inequality in Sub-Saharan Africa.

What our Audience says:

“This painful act must be abolished.”

A reader from *Origin unknown*

“Some African countries are still deep in culture and are not willing to let go of their culture and its ways. That disadvantages women from showing their many capabilities like being a leader, being creative being a part of something big. Women are disadvantaged by men in so many ways because of the culture and it forces women to look down on themselves and they end up being too afraid to voice out their thoughts, to lead, they end up being forced into so many things I’ve lost count.”

A reader from *Origin unknown*

“Dans une relation quelconque (amour fraternel, amical, ou amoureux) il doit d’abord exister le respect mutuel, la compréhension de l’un à l’autre, la patience, la maîtrise de soi, la soutenance mutuelle mais surtout le partage et les échanges d’idées sous le contrôle de Dieu qui donne en abondance tes ces qualités ou dons d’autant plus que c’est pas donné à n’importe qui d’en possède ou disposer.”

A reader from Mali
