In the modern history of Ethiopia both women and many ethno-cultural communities have been victims of injustice by the past regimes. The struggle held by ethno-nationalist forces and women has enabled the country to have a somewhat liberal constitution that grants both collective and individual rights. However, making use of these rights still requires a substantive democratic system that considers the role of Women Associations beyond just an instrument for maintaining power of the ruling party.
