How We Work

Gender justice is the goal of full equality and equity among women and girls and men and boys in all spheres of life. It is the result of women, jointly—and on an equal basis with men—defining and shaping the policies, structures, and decisions that affect their lives and society as a whole.

Advancing gender justice is at the core of everything that AMwA is doing and we are leveraging our comparative advantages (see diagram above) to achieve this. By engaging in partnerships, thought leadership, and advocacy across all that we do, we aim to unleash the power of collective action for transformational change and gender justice.

Our Approach
