The women of Sudan in times of war and peace

This chapter, from the report titled ‘Youth and Africa‘, discusses the significant contributions of women to the 2019 revolution and their ongoing struggle for gender equality. It highlights the challenges that women face in participating in peace negotiations and the need for their effective participation in Sudan’s present and future. The methodology used in the document is based on qualitative analysis of literature, press releases, personal communication with Sudanese women and men, and focus group discussions with female refugees and asylum-seekers from Khartoum and Darfur. The document also discusses the demands of Sudanese women, including ending discriminatory laws, hunger, wars, and the government’s cycle of fear and silencing, and adopting gender quotas in legislative and executive bodies and commissions. Finally, the document assesses whether the interim constitution provides a roadmap for the empowerment of Sudanese women.
