Feminist Collective for Local Development



In 2008, la Colectiva Feminista para el Desarrollo Local (Feminist Collective) was founded with the philosophy of creating a relationship model for women organizers, which has led to a joining of diverse visions of women from the urban cities to the rural areas of El Salvador, with different ideologies and religions. This coming together has given way for women organizing on a national-level, promoting collective processes that seek to recognize and support women’s rights.

The Feminist Collective is made up of a group of twenty feminists, and a wider network of volunteers, who seek to contribute to the eradication of subordination and discrimination of women, understanding women’s movement-building as a political tool, founded on the concrete and daily realities of women and their local contexts. JASS collaborates with the Feminist Collective through the Mesoamerican Women Human Rights Defenders Initiative.
