Organizing for women’s rights requires more and better funding. We work to revolutionize approaches to funding and put financing from a feminist perspective squarely on the development agenda.
Resourcing Women's Rights
The dominant economic model perpetuates inequalities, impoverishment and rights violations. We seek to understand and reveal how the economy affects women’s lives, to strengthen efforts towards economic justice and press for recognition of women’s struggles, knowledge and aspirations.
Religious fundamentalisms are on the rise globally, increasing violence, extremisms, and reinforcing patriarchal structures and control of bodies and sexuality. We work to build knowledge and strengthen organizing against fundamentalisms.
Challenging Religious Fundamentalisms
Perpetrated by state and non-state actors, violence against WHRDs is increasing. We collaborate with regional and international networks to raise awareness, strengthen protection mechanisms, and respond to WHRDs at risk.
