what we believe
this is our driving force
We believe we are facing a crisis of democratic institutions where the power of actors and institutions to represent and fight for social justice has been undercut and civil society spaces for advocacy and action are severely restricted. Work on social justice and rights is being forced underground; institutions which proclaim the urgency of making progress on women’s rights are themselves sites of entrenched gender discrimination and new actors are increasingly selling quick fixes to structural issues of inequality through ‘empowerment lite’ solutions, with conditionality requirements for access to resources that skirt hegemonic power dynamics.
We work in partnership with activists and researchers to bring together new knowledge on deep structures of inequality and discriminatory social norms, with innovative approaches and tools to transform them in organizations and communities.
BUILDING THE FIELD OF GENDER EQUALITY
We engage with analysis and action premised on feminist inquiry and intersectional principles. This enables us to bridge theory and practice in ways that nurture collective understanding and shift discriminatory social norms. Our resources draw from grounded experiences of change interventions in organizational and community settings which also involve mind-body work.
