About Us

Our History

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 spaces 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.

Why Netright ?

NETRIGHT was founded in 1999 by a group of individuals and organisations interested in promoting women’s rights in all national processes. It was a response to a number of identified gaps in the approach of civil society organisations working in women’s rights issues.Such gaps included the lack of a collective approach to working on national and regional processes; an under emphasis of the political and power relational issues in the gender and development work; the absence of space for debate and discussion to come to a clear understanding of women’s positions on their rights and other national issues; and the inability to respond to critical issues partly due to lack of effective engagement with national institutions on women and policy making.

NETRIGHT also aims to create spaces 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; and the inability to respond to critical issues partly due to lack of effective engagement with national institutions on women and policy making.
