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.

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.
