Advocacy

We advocate for women's rights

Our partner organisations do fantastic work for women’s rights in conflict-affected countries. But nationally, regionally and internationally, there still exist laws, policies, structures and attitudes that negatively affect the position of women. That is why we advocate for new laws, gender equality and equal power structures, to bring about lasting change for women.

Our aim

Kvinna till Kvinna’s advocacy is aimed at international and national agreements, laws, conventions and policy documents. Within these frameworks, we push for legislative and policy changes. We also call for the implementation of existing legislation on women’s rights. Where discriminatory structures and attitudes persist, we advocate to alter these. All our advocacy efforts have a rights-based approach, with feminist analysis as a starting point.
