The State of Women's Organizations

Mar 1, 2008

What is the state of women's organizations? Who funds women's rights work? What dynamics are shaping the growth of women's organizations? To answer these questions, AWID surveyed almost 1,000 women's organizations worldwide; reviewed the literature; interviewed donors; and drew insights and recommendations from 300 women's rights leaders and funding allies from 94 countries at the AWID and Semillas Money and Movements meeting in Querétaro, Mexico, at the end of 2006.
