Setaweet is a home-grown Ethiopian movement that aims to explore and articulate what feminism means for Ethiopian women.
Setaweet is the first feminist movement and business in contemporary Ethiopia. Setaweet means ‘of woman’ in Amharic.

Founded in 2014, Setaweet is a home-grown Ethiopian movement that aims to explore and articulate what feminism means for Ethiopian women. They do this through consciousness-raising efforts such as the Setaweet Circle, a woman-only group that meets monthly, and Open Sessions which focus on women’s equality through contemporary Ethiopian issues of culture, media and language.

As a business, Setaweet PLC provides a range of feminist services for private companies, NGOs and schools seeking to create a better working environment for women and men alike.

Through feminist engagement in both voluntary and private sectors, Setaweet enables women to come together to solve the problems of inequality and empowers women to take charge on feminist issues such as gender-based violence, equal pay, economic empowerment, and equality in care work.

Womankind’s partnership with Setaweet focuses on the economic empowerment of women.
