Impact of shrinking space on women organising in Jordan

This study attempts to pinpoint key challenges that face women human rights defenders and young feminists in relation to the political, socio-economic and demographic challenges in Jordan and place them within an analytical framework. This will further supports propositions for coping mechanisms and recommendations.

The findings are intended to strengthen the feminist approach to women organising outside the ordinary structure of women civil society organisations to continue to be relevant and advance gender equality agenda in Jordan.

In parallel, the study also zooms in and identifies whether the civic space around women organising is restrictive and is an impediment to activism especially by young feminists.
