As a multiregional organization grounded in the South, JASS’ work is linked by a crossregional team and by crossregional exchanges for learning, communications and advocacy.

In the Spotlight

We are MOBILIZING HOPE during this year's 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence! Join us every day as we feature 16 women activists who at the forefront of many justice efforts. They will inspire and give you hope -- a true testament to the power of organizing, even in the most dire of times.

URGENT

Resource

In 2014, there were many times that the balance between struggle and hope was hard to maintain. Crises and conflict continued to unfold across the world and yet, with increasing energy, we also witnessed and joined many people coming together and rising up against injustice and violence.

Women Crossing the Line

For me, the idea of ‘women crossing the line’ means women pushing forward and continuing to advance progressive women’s rights agenda’s in all corners of the world. It's a collective moving forward, it is a stampede; it is all women finding the strength to claim our power.
