Gender and social justice

We apply an intersectional approach, to understand how globalization and economic change affect the way different forms of discrimination combine, overlap, and intersect, in the experiences of different people, especially those of marginalized people or groups.

We support activism and advocacy for equality and justice. We think women’s political participation, a more critical focus on decent work for all, and more emphasis on gender-just economic models are key to strengthening women in Asia.

We sensitise and support governments at national and regional level. We strive to reconnect issues and actors and build strategic alliances to promote policies and programmes that achieve equal opportunities for all.
