CAMGEW Advocate For Socio-Economic And Environmental Rights Of Women



Cameroon Gender And Environmental Watch ( CAMGEW) organized a one day session to discuss better ways to advocate for women's Socio-Economic And Environmental Rights, March 9, 2022.

This comes a day after the international women's day celebration 2022 celebrated under the theme: "Gender Equality Today For A Sustainable Tomorrow".


Present, were students from the department of communication and development as well as those of geography and planning from the University of Bamenda, MINFOF as well as inspector of social welfare as well as women empowerment.


The students shared their views through a one hour debate on women's Socio-Economic And Environmental Rights with panels for and against. 

Madam Sevidzem Ernestine, women empowerment officer of CAMGEW, environmental watch, climate activist and one of the founding members of CAMGEW was present at the event. 

"Over the years, we have discovered that women have a lot of potentials which need to be developed and supported morally and technically".

"The world is focused on gender equality, environmental sustainability and everyone is concerned about climate change. We cannot talk of environmental sustainability without having women in place and without having youths. When we empower more women, there is sustainability in what they do", she further explained.


CAMGEW therefore calls on signitaries through petitions launched aimed at promoting women's Socio-Economic And Environmental Rights.
