The Association for Women’s Rights in Development (AWID) is an international feminist organisation working to be a driving force within the global community of feminist and women’s rights activists, organisations and movements, strengthening our collective voice, influencing and transforming structures of power and decision-making and advancing human rights, gender justice and environmental sustainability worldwide.
AWID’s Young Feminist Activism (YFA) Program contributes to stronger multigenerational movements that are diverse and inclusive and where young feminists’ contributions, activism, perspectives and needs are highlighted in women’s movements; accurately reflected in international decision-making spaces, development debates; and translated into policies and programs that are grounded in human rights and gender equality.
