The Equality Institute were engaged by COFEM to research and develop a series of tip sheets that formed the COFEM Feminist Pocketbook - a resource to help practitioners working in humanitarian and development contexts to articulate and implement feminist approaches in addressing violence against women and girls (VAWG), also known as gender-based violence (GBV).
