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.
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!

Today Nannette and @BeautyTawiah finally arrived in the most beautiful city of Germany: Frankfurt <3
On the third day of our little calender let's review the third day of our speakers tour: We joined a march against violence against women on the international action day.
On this occasion please check out this amazing video by Amnesty Ghana against domestic violence:
We will start today with the amazing twinning-evening at the office of Amnesty Munich
last tuesday. Several groups of Amnesty Munich joined to discuss various topics, starting with the challenges in the twinning to gender based violence
Nannette had the chance to talk at the board meeting of @amnesty_de last weekend. It was very interesting to hear what made her join @amnestyghana and what she is currently working on. She also met the German Youth Representative Committee @AmnestyJugend #OneAmnesty
Last preparations of the Amnesty group in Munich for the visit of the Amnesty delegation from Ghana. Let's keep fingers crossed that the visa problems will be solved! #OneAmnesty
We are happy that young delegates from Amnesty International Ghana Youth will visit the yoth camp of @amnestyjugend in almost two weeks now!
Right now, everythink is really stressful due to visa application and organising. But we are all looking very forward to it! We'll update you soon!
Keep your fingers crossed!
