Outcome 2
A greater number of activists and women leaders, who can advance women's human and sexual rights from a feminist perspective.

Framing shifts

Greater knowledge/information on the intersection of sexual rights, gender, and human rights. Begin questioning the existing structures and societal norms around gender and sexuality, and applying feminist concepts to their work. Learn to reframe rights from an affirmative and choice- and consent-based standard. Understand the value of working collaboratively with others and see it as essential to advancing women’s rights.

Action shifts

Greater self awareness of their rights, and practice less discrimination against others. Influence family and community to recognise women’s rights, and reduce stigma, discrimination, and violence against women. Use a feminist lens to move from identity-driven work to working on larger women’s rights/sexual rights issues. Improve skills, helping them to offer better quality programmes/services to their constituencies, which are more inclusive and informed.

Policy shifts

Greater participation of women leaders at the policy level.  Greater representation of women leaders within policy-making bodies.  Influence the development and implementation of policies relating to women within State institutions at the community level. More informed about laws and policies that exist at local, regional, national, and global levels. Demand greater accountability to improve and make services more inclusive.

Collective shifts

Connect with new/more individual leaders and activists—build networks.
