For over 20 years The Central America Women’s Network (CAWN) has worked in the UK to raise awareness of women’s rights and international development.
CAWN contributes to uphold the political, social, cultural and economic rights of Central American women by working with others to:
- raise awareness
Among the public of the situation of women in Central America, the possible impacts of international, regional or national policies on women’s rights and the ways in which these threats are being exposed and resisted by women’s organisations throughout the region.
- strengthen advocacy and campaigning efforts
In order to advance the specific demands of women’s organisations in the region and to support campaigning to protect and promote the rights of women in Central America.
- promote solidarity links
To develop CAWN’s capacity to respond to requests for support and solidarity from women in the region so that they can oppose unjust policies and respond to natural disasters and other emergencies.
