IWDA is an Australia 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
VALUES: Feminist, Accountable, Collaborative, Transformative
OUR GOALS 2023-2025:
1. Resource and contribute to a resilient and vibrant feminist movement, primarily in the areas of freedom from violence and power, leadership and civic space
2. Promote systemic change towards gender equality for all
3. Build a resilient and relevant feminist organisation
We resource the work of diverse women’s rights organisations, enable them to be more effective by providing support that goes beyond money, and we make our own contributions to feminist movements through advocacy, knowledge creation and translation.
As part of this contribution, we take actions to decolonise our approach to feminism and development. We want to become the best we can be at partnerships across the Majority and Minority worlds. This means we seek to understand and leverage our locational power so that we know when to:
STEP UP and use our power to leverage resources and access for women’s rights organisations, and make our own contribution to feminist movements
STAND WITH feminist movements in solidarity and amplify the work of global south actors
STEP BACK when others are better placed to take the lead
SIT WITH uncertainty, embrace communal learning and deep listening, and accept that time is needed to collectively discern the best course of action.
Our 2023-2025 Strategic Plan outlines a third way between the models of women’s funds and international development NGOs.
