Empowering women to engage effectively in governance

New Oxfam Research Backgrounder: Transformative, Feminist Leadership for Women's Rights."

The complex threats to women’s rights today, particularly in societies dealing with conflict, poverty, and inequality, requires a critical mass of feminist leaders to lead the way in shifting oppressive power dynamics that keep harmful systems in place.

Women’s organizations and movements are creating alternative models, ones that foreground feminist principles, creatively dismantling and creating alternatives to oppressive structures and norms, to manifest collective visions for change. Development organizations and donors have an important role to play in valuing and making these strategies and practices visible, so that such practices can be shared and better contribute to the achievement of a more just future.This Research Backgrounder is designed to inform and foster discussion.
