The Association for Women's Rights in Development (AWID) is a global, feminist membership organization.
For over 30 years they have been a part of the incredible ecosystem of women’s rights movements working to achieve gender equality, sustainable development and women's human rights worldwide.
A world where human rights and freedoms, environmental sustainability and gender justice are a lived reality for all people and the planet.
They aim to be a driving force within the global community of feminist and women’s rights activists, organizations and movements, strengthening their collective voice, influencing and transforming structures of power and decision-making and advancing human rights, gender justice and environmental sustainability worldwide.
Working together is key for women’s rights and gender justice to be a lived reality and they support feminist and women’s rights organizations and movements to collaborate effectively across issues, regions and constituencies.
The main focus of their work is global but they also work closely with their members and other women’s rights groups and allies at local, national and regional levels, so that their realities inform their work. They respond to some of the challenging problems that women’s rights movements face, by:
building knowledge from a feminist perspective and putting new ideas on the table for a more just development agenda;
organizing and facilitating constructive spaces for their members and other diverse women’s rights organizations and allies to strategize and collaborate;
participating in international spaces to advocate and present concrete policy proposals for women’s rights worldwide;
mobilizing their members and broader constituency to strengthen collective action; and
equipping women’s rights movements with timely and accurate information they can use in their struggles - they are a trusted multilingual online platform for the latest information and analysis on women’s rights worldwide.
