Help us and demand freedom and justice for Women Worker's Rights activist Li Qiaochu: https://www.amnesty.org/en/documents/asa17/2235/2020/en/
In the current crisis we notice gender inequality eminently.
Most of the system-relevant care-work is completed by women and is shamefully bad paid.
Additionally most of the unpaid carework "at home", like watching forcibly at home staying children, is carried out by women due to unjustified gender roles.
Pregnant schoolgirls in #SierraLeone need the chance to fulfil their dreams!
Don't miss this blog on the long battle to keep pregnant girls in school published by the Daily Maverik in South Africa and keep supporting Amnesty's campaign! #Revoketheban
Since 2015 Amnesty International in Ghana and in Germany have been campaigning that pregnant girls in Sierra Leone have access to education. The ECOWAS Court of Justice found that the government of Sierra Leone’s ban on pregnant girls attending mainstream school and sitting exams violates their human rights including the right to non-discrimination.On #internationalwomensday we call on the government, to fully implement ECOWAS Court of Justice’ decision as a matter of urgency. #Revoketheban
Let Ghana be next! Amnesty International in Ghana had a meeting with President Akufo-Addo to push for the abolition of the #DeathPenalty and to discuss prison conditions in Ghana! Great work! Amnesty International in Germany collected more than 1500 signatures so far to support the cause. It is planned to hand them over at the Ghanaian Embassy to further lobby for the removal of the death penalty. @amnestyjugend
Great success for girls' rights in #SierraLeone:
The ECOWAS Court of Justice ruled on 12th dec that the government’s ban on pregnant girls attending schools and sitting exams is unlawful.
Many of you in both Ghana and Germany worked on the topic.
This is the perfect proof of what we can achieve if we stand together and fight human rights violations!
