Power and possibility

Girls and young women live at the crossroads of power and vulnerability, and this is equally true in occupied and conflict-affected contexts. Their perspectives and contributions are necessary to promote durable, feminist peace and dismantle systems of exclusion.

This report seeks to contribute to intergenerational feminist peacebuilding by naming the barriers that currently exist to girls’ and young women’s participation, and identifying opportunities to prioritise their perspectives and leadership. Through a mapping of The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation’s work, desk research, surveys, and interviews, we identify four thematic opportunities to promote young women’s leadership in peacebuilding, with particular entry points for feminist funders, member states, and international organisations.
