Our areas of expertise

Our advocacy work

Advocacy is an important part of our mandate. Together with our partners, we advocate for legislative and policy protection of women’s rights. Where discriminatory attitudes and structures persist, we call for change.

The Gemaket programme

Our Gemaket programme in Sweden allows young women who have newly arrived in the country to meet others who grew up in Sweden. Participants talk about women’s rights, can apply for funding to start a project and receive support from a mentor.
