What We Do
We work to advance and protect the rights of diverse women and girls.
We focus our partnership work in countries across the Asia Pacific region and collaborate on research, advocacy and policy through national, regional and global platforms, and coalitions. Our work is evidence-informed and evidence informing. It seeks to promote changes in policy and practice towards gender equality and the full realisation of women’s rights, and to empower women as agents of this change.
We continue to respect and acknowledge the life cycle experiences of diverse women and girls. We have always understood that women are not a homogenous group and that gender-based discrimination intersects with other sources of discrimination including race, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion and sociocultural background, which can further limit access and deepen inequalities.
