JASS had a strong and visible presence at the AWID (Association for Women's Rights in Development) Forum held in Cape Town, South Africa in November 2008. JASS core team leaders Nani Zulminarni (Indonesia) and Martha Tholanah (Zimbabwe) were featured in the third opening plenary on the "Context of Our Work," and JASS board Co-chair Srilatha Batliwala and JASS Southern Africa activist Sindi Blose (South Africa) closed the forum on the final plenary. JASS staff and allies participated on and led half a dozen workshops and presentations, JASS videos were a big hit, and the JASS booth was the heart of the ballroom with friends, music, and space for sharing and networking.

A session that was supposed to be about experiences of hate crimes, and remembering people we have lost at the hand of homophobia ended up into something else. The session started so well, we had panelists who did presentations and expressions from different organisations, but same people that we always see in these meetings and panels. I loved what Chan from Zambia, if not mistaken said, who he identifies as a transmen. He feels that there is no unity within the feminist movement. A lot of people identified with her.

I cannot believe I almost gave up on coming to Cape Town for the 11th AWID Forum. I was on the verge of giving up as I had hassles trying to get the South African visa - every time I go to apply for a visa (twice a year), there are always new rules. Anyway, I am happy to be connecting with feminists and getting affirmation that feminism is the way to go in my work and my life.

Tiwonge at AWIDFrom AWID, I have learnt on how to strengthen women's organisations and to bring solidality on womens movement in our regions and our countries and documentation is important. To make sure that we are  achieving the MDG3 is when we as women we realise our rights, we exercise them and they are fullfied. It's we women who can make things to change by dismantling patriachal systems which are oppressing women. Create a space for women.
