ABOUT IWDA

IWDA is an Australian-based organisation, resourcing diverse women’s rights organisations, primarily in Asia and the Pacific, and contributing to global feminist movements to advance our vision of gender equality for all.

VISION: Gender equality for all

PURPOSE: To defend and advance the rights of diverse women and girls

OUR GOALS 2020-2023:

1.      Resource and contribute to a resilient and vibrant feminist movement

STEP BACK: when others are better placed to take the lead.
