باختصار
تكون شبكة النسويات الشابات بمثابة شبكة إقليمية للناشطات الشابات المنفردات (١٨ سنة وحتى أوائل ٣٠) العاملات في المجتمعات العربية. وستوفر الأدوات والمهارات والمعارف التنظيمية اللازمة للناشطات الشابات للتجمع وحشد جهودهن بفاعلية أكثر لمعالجة القضايا المتعلقة بحقوق المرأة التى تعتبرنها مهمة بالنسبة إليهن.

وقد أدركنا أننا كناشطات شابات نعمل على القضايا المتعلقة بحقوق المرأة في المنطقة، نحتاج إلى أربعة أمور أساسية ألا وهي:

المساحة لاستيعاب وتعزيز الأفكار والنشاطات

المعرفة

المساحة لبناء الروابط

المساحة المتقدمة والشاملة والآمنة

وعليه، تسعى شبكتنا إلى تحقيق الأهداف التالية:

إنشاء مجموعة من الناشطات من شأنها خرق عزلة الناشطات الشابات وتوفير مساحة للعمل على مختلف قضايا المرأة.
توفير المعلومات والمعارف حول النسوية والتحليل النقدي لحركة حقوق المرأة في المجتمعات العربية.
أن نشكل منصة متقدمة لمناقشة كافة المواضيع الرائجة والمحرمة التي تؤثر على حقوق المرأة في المجتمعات العربية.
توسيع الخطاب حول حقوق المرأة في المجتمعات العربية كي يكون أكثر شمولا وتقدما وسياسيا.
We are a group of young Arab women activists building a collective network of support for young Arab activists in the region. We recognize that Arab young women face particular challenges and experiences of sexism. We also recognize the fragmentation and elitism of women's rights work in Arab societies. The group of us believes that an organized support network uniting young women activists working on an array of issues concerning women rights and coming from various perspectives and backgrounds is the perfect way to push women's rights organizing forward in the region.
