what we do

We promote feminist solidarity. Feminism is not only about more women in power, but in particular about standing up for our sisters who have least access to decision-making, and in changing the underlying root causes of exploitation. We work in partnership with other women and feminist organisations at national and global level. We co-facilitate the spaces for women and feminist in the United Nations policy processes through actively shaping the Women’s Major Group. Together with almost one thousand partners from these global alliances, we present our policy priorities.

Feminist solidarity to change the root causes of exploitation

In many cases, women’s human rights and environmental defenders are standing up to defend their homes, lands and forests from exploitation by commercial corporations or repression from governments. Especially indigenous peoples are at the forefront of this conflict. Indigenous peoples protect 80% of the world’s biodiversity on their territories, but at the same time, extractive industries are vying for these lands to mine fossil fuels, uranium and forests.
