In recent years women in Algeria, Egypt, Morocco and Tunisia have secured more rights, greater access to education and a modest increase in their political representation. But entrenching those achievements will require joint advocacy by women’s organizations, governments and religious groups, argues Leila Rhiwi of the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM). “To guarantee and consolidate the gains of the last few years we must follow through with the application of the reforms,” she told Africa Renewal. “If you do not have advocacy, then no change happens because institutions are always reluctant to change.”
