How we work matters
as much as what we do

 

We are a values-driven, creative and inclusive feminist organisation. We are collaborative, communicative and seek to foster exciting partnerships across fields. Our mission is to advance gender equality and prevent violence against women and girls. It’s a big mission and there are lots of moving parts that contribute.

We work across four key areas to fulfil our mission: Research and Evaluation, Communications and Innovation, Policy, Advocacy and Strategic Advice, and Feminist Movement Building. Within these key areas, the work we do includes (but is not limited to):
