A pan-African feminist with roots in Cameroon, Françoise Moudouthe is passionate about advocating for women’s rights and fostering sisterhood within African feminist movements. In January 2021, she became the CEO of the African Women’s Development Fund, a pan-African women’s fund that provides financial and other resources to African women’s organisations working towards the fulfilment of all African women’s rights. Prior to joining AWDF, Françoise founded and ran Eyala, a bilingual (English-French) platform that amplifies the voices and lived experiences of African feminists, and worked as an international consultant for gender justice in Africa. She previously spent about eight years coordinating collective activism against child marriage, as part of the team that incubated Girls Not Brides, the global civil society partnership to end child marriage, and then as Girls Not Brides’ Africa Lead. Françoise is currently based in Accra, Ghana.
